New old stock. Bag shows wear but the antenna has never been deployed
DX-EE - “No-Trap” 40-20-15-10 meter dipole or inverted V. Also covers 30-17 & 12 meters with an antenna tuner. Overall length is 40 ft. Heavy Duty solid core wires will not stretch. Insulators, rope and dipole centre are also heavy duty . The Alpha-Delta DX-EE is 40 feet long and intended primarily for use in limited spaces. It will give acceptable performance when folded into an “L” or “V” configuration and is also suitable for attic installations. It is about as small an antenna you can get and still have most of the performance of a full size dipole. For those with limited space, it does not get any better than this without going to a true mobile/portable antenna or other unconventional design that will undoubtedly come with a lot of compromises.
Due to its size, the Alpha-Delta DX-EE could itself conceivably be a “portable antenna”. While this sounds workable in theory, the solid copper wire is unwieldy and hard to work with and would break prematurely from constant bending. To adapt it for portable use you would need a way to roll up and store six elements, then deploy them when needed…and do it without turning all that wire into a jumbled up mess.
What’s in the package.
It’s just a dipole, so there isn’t much to the Alpha-Delta DX-EE: Six elements neatly rolled up, connected to a plastic feed block where the coax plugs in. Also included are plastic element spacers and extra wire to hold the spacers in place. They were also nice enough to include a generous supply of black dacron antenna rope to hold it up. All the components are good quality and UV resistant. Alpha-Delta did not cut corners on the physical construction.
