The Diamond V2000A Tri-band Base Antenna is an excellent choice for ham radio FM operation on the 6 meter, 2 meter, and 70cm bands. This antenna provides a compact design, making it easy to install on your roof or mast. The V2000A is built with high-quality materials and components, ensuring that it is durable and long-lasting.
The tri-band capabilities of the V2000A are what truly set it apart from other antennas on the market. Whether you are operating on the 6 meter, 2 meter, or 70cm band, this antenna provides excellent performance and a wide coverage area. The SWR is low across all three bands, ensuring that you will be able to transmit and receive signals without the need of an antenna tuner.
One of the biggest advantages of the Diamond V2000A is its gain. On the 6 meter band, it has a gain of 2.15 dBi, on the 2 meter band, it has a gain of 6.2 dB, and on the 70cm band, it has a gain of 8.4 dB. This makes it an ideal antenna for reaching dx stations expecially taking advantage of E-spradic band openings. Six meters band opening will offer you fantastic opportunities. The V2000A is also equipped with a heavy-duty aluminum boom and stainless steel hardware, which are designed to resist to extreme weather conditions and last for several years.
In conclusion, if you’re looking for a high-quality tri-band base antenna that can provide excellent performance and three bands, the Diamond V2000A is a great choice. Whether you are a seasoned ham radio operator or just starting out, the V2000A has everything you need to get on the air and make contacts with other operators, near your QTH or DXing around the world.
The V-2000A utilizes a linear phase shift design to couple the different frequency band sections together. The antenna functions as a half wavelength counterpoise, two 5/8 wavelength elements at 2m, and four 5/8 wavelength elements at 70cm. A watertight joint assembly connects the two antenna sections into one ridged assembly. The resulting antenna has the same strength as a one piece structure.
