The Whizz Whip means you’re on the air instantly, and working HF and VHF or UHF and ideal marriage to Yeasu’s FT-817ND. The Whizz Whip is a truly unique design that enables you to transmit and receive all the way from 3.5 to 450 MHz. On HF, the integrated tuner will generally provide an excellent match (better than 2:1) and permit loading the antenna perfectly. On VHF, the antenna may be tuned by fine tuning the whip length in conjunction with the tuner. You can operate the antenna in different modes on VHF and UHF, such as 1/4 wave, 5/8, 3/4 or even 11/4 wavelengths, depending on frequency.

It is also a superb SWL and scanning antenna too. The antenna’s C-VAT tuning does a spectacular job on reception. Far more selective and noise-free than many active antennas. It provides a tuned impedance match to your receiver’s front end and you can use it with random wires, rubber ducks or even small dipoles.
