Mosley Electronics RV-3C Base Vertical Antenna



RV-3C: Mosley RV Verticals for multi-band operation feature automatic band switching from the location of the transceiver.
Each antenna utilizes the world famous “Trap-Master” traps. Undisputed and unaltered since their inception Mosley “Trap-Master” traps incorporate high ‘Q’ coils firmly fixed on molded forms. These high quality metal encased traps maintain resonant frequency stability on all bands under a wide variety of weather conditions. With a simplified base mounting technique no concrete footing is necessary. These heavy-duty verticals measure up to the most exacting commercial standards. Elements are swaged for extra strength and reduced wind load.

Low angle, omnidirectional radiation and minimum SWR (1.5/1 or better at resonance) assure maximum performance. Power is fed directly to antenna with a single 52 ohm coax line. The Mosley verticals RV series have been designed to combine ease of installation, and excellent performance! These verticals require only modest ground systems. A complex ground rod and radial systems may be used if the operator desires, but extensive installation experience has proven that outstanding performance is achieved with only a simple mounting post which doubles as the ground rod. As a result, these antennas are ideally suited for upper story installation, city lot dwellers or easy installation in even the most sophisticated QTH.

As with all Mosley antennas, pieces are all pre-drilled and color coded, which makes assembly quick and easy. Our hardware is made of the best grade of stainless steel and our tubing is aircraft grade drawn aluminum. The warranty on the RV line is two year against any defects of material or workmanship.
