The OCF Dipole or the Off Center Fed Dipole has been around for ages. We brushed it off and made it better! Extensive modeling on the computer then building it, and testing it for days has resulted in what we believe to be the finest "correctly" designed OCF ever made.
What do we mean by correctly designed? This one has several areas where the compromises of the competitors have been overcome and designed out. This 135 foot wire dipole is made of the finest materials, just like you would expect from Array Solutions!
