Technical description UB-8060
The ultimate rotary dipole for DXers - the only antenna on the market with continuous coverage from 3.5 to 3.8 MHz.
One of the problems faced by radio amateurs on the low frequency bands is definitely the antenna. There are many solutions on the market, but unfortunately none with continuous frequency coverage from CW to SSB on the 80m band.
Solutions that use tuners to extend the bandwidth clearly leave a lot to be desired, because the antenna does not work optimally as a result. Ultrabeam has now solved this problem perfectly by developing an adjustable coil.
Using the same touch controller as the classic UltraBeam series, you can adjust the Rotary Dipole UB80 from 3.5 to 3.8 MHz with excellent matching without any loss of quality. And what's more - the addition of the increasingly popular 60m band makes this antenna an exceptional companion for DXers and demanding radio amateurs alike. Of course, you can control it all from your PC or directly from the radio.
Controller and cable included
Comes with RCU-06 controller with color display (touch display), and 30m control cable with connectors already attached.
Application description UB-8060
Rotary dipoles are the ideal addition if you already have a beam for several bands. Mostly bands like 80m or 60m are missing and you install dipoles for them. However, these have the disadvantage of not being rotatable.
In contrast to the classic wire dipoles, only one mounting point (namely the antenna mast) is needed for the rotary dipoles, since they are "rigid dipoles". Thus, rotary dipoles with a rotor are rotatable, which allows you to additionally benefit from the directivity.

Ultrabeam offers a range of motorised adjustable beams. Originally founded in Italy, the company was taken over by WiMo in 2017 and production was moved to Herxheim.
Ultrabeam offers 2 product lines: Beams from 6 to 20m and from 6 to 40m. The UB-20MX is the smallest of the beams from 6 to 20m, ideal for the terraced house or other situations with limited space.
