Heavy duty 5kW, 4:1 unun designed for use with wire verticals, long wires and multiband monopole verticals. Utilizes stacked cores to deliver efficient broadband performance and high power rating across all HF frequencies. Works well with both internal transceiver and external antenna tuners.
This unun is an excellent match for any of the 43 and 31-33 foot multiband verticals including the S9, ZeroFive, MFJ and DX Engineering vertical antennas allowing the use of full legal limit ++ power. If a lower power version is desired, please see our model 4132.
Although many customers report very good performance using just a single ground rod, the best performance will come from using at least 4+ ground radials or several elevated radials. In a temporary or emergency situation, a single counterpoise can be used when cut to approximately 1/4 wavelength of the lowest operating frequency.
Ununs are intended for use with unbalanced antennas such as verticals and long wires. They will not work with balanced designs such as dipoles or loops and use with a balanced antenna may cause erratic operation and/or damage to the unit.
