Sirio Tornado 2024 5/8 Wave Base Vertical Antenna





2100501.00: Even iconic products such as the Sirio New Tornado, on the market for over 30 years, are always the subject of study and analysis for continuous improvement to make them increasingly responsive to the requests of our customers. This analysis led us to redesign the plastic antenna insulators which represent the ‘heart’ of the product. They have been completely redesigned to make them more robust thanks to the creation of 5 new reinforcing fins and a new sealing system. The plastic material used for molding is a black polycarbonate, a versatile and robust material that guarantees electrical and mechanical performances over time, also thanks to the new pre-molding thermal conditioning. These modifications will guarantee maximum durability of the product over time. New Tornado 2024 with its useful bandwidth of 26.4-30 Mhz, is ideal for either CB or Amateur operation and will give great performance. Its quality build will also ensure years of use. The Tornado has been one of our best selling CB / Amateur base station antennas, and we can highly recommend it.
