DIAMOND BB2M - Mobile wide band antenna, continuous coverage 7-30MHz + 50MHz - (can receive from 3 to 100MHz)
Diamond has designed the BB2M specifically for radio amateurs wishing to have a "wide-band" antenna
for HF and 50MHz (in reception from 3 to 100MHz) with a SWR always lower than 2.0, and without having to provide for the calibration of the stylus.
An antenna that obviously has its compromises with respect to an optimized band for each single band, but which can be decisive for transmitting and receiving in all those cases where, for example, it is difficult to prepare an efficient ground system, such as example a boat or a fiberglass camper, or where it is not always possible to get to the antenna to change band.
The use of the BB-2M without any stylus adjustment may require the use of an antenna tuner on some band sections outside of the radiating ones and at the beginning of 7 MHz.
This antenna is equipped with a 90 ° collapsible stylus (F.O.S.), operation possible very simply by lifting the upper part. This particularity is useful for parking the car in the garage, without having to disassemble the antenna every time.
