One of the most popular base antennas available, the Antron is known for providing great base TX/RX performance at a very reasonable price! At just over 17 feet tall, the antenna is large enough to get out a good distance, and small enough for home and small commercial installations.
The Antron 99 Base Station Antenna makes it possible to tune the input to the antenna and obtain the right SWR reading over a range of frequencies, thanks to the Solarcon Twin Ring Adjust-A-Match tuning feature. Raising and lowering the rings will determine how low or high the frequency will be.

I need to educate myself better on antennas as far as vertical vs horizontal and directional vs omnidirectional. When I was younger I had a aluminum Starduster. Don't remember much except it talked. (This was in the late 70's. Now I have been getting back into amateur radio operations again. I did some research ans purchased a Solartron A99 and stuck it on 80ft of pole with 100ft of LMR400 coax connected to my dosy meter to my helper to my transmitter and BOOM. SWR 1.3 to 1.5 at 100 watt dead key with a 50 ton60 watt swing. Talk local and skip all over the US and Canada on AM and SSB. Now I'm stocked and studying the differences it Horizontal vs Vertical and Directional vs Omnidirectional. I'm just stuck with the delema to go different or leave it alone. It's just hard to leave it alone if I can improve my recieve and transmit range I want too but don't want to chance ending up with a not as good setup as now. And suggestions from experience for me. 73's from 2WR2643 Trigger NE Alabama.
Exactly what we were looking for...ty
I only have my antron 99 about 15 ft in the air from the base of the antenna although I live on side of a hill with a clear valley below me I have listened to people from New York City Vermont Detroit I've talked to Central Texas and I live in Oregon and that's on a barefoot radio. My goal is to get my base of the antenna up to 30 ft. 🙏
Just a Big Stick clone
Seems like a great performer so far. Happy with my purchase. Thank You
