Beverage On Ground Antenna (BOG). Single-wire, single-direction beverage on ground feedpoint transformer and termination set.
Single-wire, single-direction beverage feed systems. These use an isolated winding, matching transformer system to significantly increase the signal-to-noise ratio. This transformer works with BOG antennas that normally have 200 Ohm impedance.
The termination resistor included is a 168 ohm, 4 watt, non-inductive resistor that withstands nearby lightning strikes and high RF levels from near-by transmitters.
This Beverage Antenna matching set can also be delivered for 50 Ohm feedline with UHF connectors. Please contact us for more information.
The Beverage Antenna is a relatively inexpensive but very effective long wire receiving antenna used by amateur radio, shortwave listening, and longwave radio DXers and military applications.
The BOG antenna should be shorter than the classic Beverage antenna, lengths between 50 to 60 meter generally works well.
Our line of Beverage Systems offer great flexibility in building high performance Beverage receive antennas systems for DXing and contesting.
