* Resonance is affected slightly by positioning of the delay line. This does not affect performance. However it will shift the swr point a little.

This antenna is made from 3 inch pvc and the bottom mounting system is interchangeable. The pole mount is shown.  The antenna has a SO239 connector at the base to connect the supplied delay line and choke. For 80 meters the delay line is 42 feet long and is not part of the radiating section. The radiating part of the antenna is 80% of its length from the top down. The small telescoping whip is no longer a part of the  antenna as no one puts the antenna up and takes it down to make a small adjustment, an antenna tuner is much better suited for that. SWR is typically 1.2:1 and the bandwidth is ~80 khz to the 1.5 vswr points. The antenna is weather proof and can tolerate winds of 70 miles an hr. The pole mount is designed to slide over a antenna mast which is less than 1.25 inches in diameter, (most are 1 inch) with a stop bolt preventing the mount from sliding into the antenna. The stop bolt can be removed and you can drill a hole into the mast and put the bolt thru the mast and mounting pipe for a more secure mount. Total length with the mounting pole is 10 ft. The pole mount itself is 5 ft 4 inches long. You can paint the antenna any color you desire as long as there is no metal in the paint. You can place the antenna on the floor in an apartment, or window, or on a table. The only requirement is that you not place any metal objects within 5 feet of the antenna.
Note: The small whip has been discontinued because its easy to break off and no one uses it anyway.  You can specify which part of the band you want to operate on and it can be made to order.  A tuner is recommended and required to cover the entire band. (tuner will not cause a loss of performance.)
