Never hit the transmit button on your transceiver without a 50-ohm load connected to the transceiver's output. If you do, you will damage your transceiver. Many authorities suggest not even turning on a transceiver without a 50-ohm load connected to to transceiver's unused output. The Diamond Antenna DL30A Compact Dummy provides the required 50 ohms of impedance when an antenna is not mounted for whatever reason. The DL30 measures 30mm in diameter and 75mm in length, so it is small enough to be attached to an unused output of a HF/VHF/UHF transceiver. The DL30's power rating is 100 watts peak and 15 watts continuous, and the frequency rating is DC to 500 MHz. Connector type is a gold-plated UHF/PL-259.

Diamond Antenna NR770HB Dualband VHF/UHF Mobile Antenna

The Diamond Antenna NR770HB Dualband VHF/UHF Mobile Antenna is resonant on the 2-meter and 70-centimeter amateur bands.

Diamond Antenna NR770HB Dualband VHF/UHF Mobile Antenna

The NR770HB is our favorite 2m/440 antenna because it represents to us the best compromise of weight, length, color, gain, and mounting options.

Icom IC-208H Dualband Transceiver Icom IC-208H Dualband Transceiver

The NR770HB is ideal for users of VHF/UHF dualband transceivers like these Icom IC-208H that have been installed in Discoveries.

Diamond Antenna NR770HB Dualband VHF/UHF Mobile Antenna

The NR770HB is a 1/2-wavelength design providing 3.0 dB of gain on 2 meters, and a 2 x 5/8-wavelength design providing 5.5 dB gain on 70 centimeters. Power rating is 200/200 watts, four times the typical power output of most VHF/UHF mobile units.

Diamond Antenna NR770HB Dualband VHF/UHF Mobile Antenna

The NR770HB's tip is covered for maximum gain and to protect the tip from impacts.

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

The NR770HB is 39" tall and weighs 200 grams, so it will withstand the punishment of sustained off-highway use. Because of the 1/2-wavelength design, grounding the NR770HB is not required. For all of these reasons, the NR770HB is very suited for use with the K9000 Motorized Antenna Mount, which is our favored method of mounting a VHF/UHF mobile antenna on our vehicles because of the high likelihood of breaking the antenna on the trail from contact with overhead objects and for convenience around town.

Diamond Antenna NR770HB Dualband VHF/UHF Mobile Antenna

If you do not have a K9000 Motorized Mount, the NR770HB features fold-over ability for entry into areas with low overhead clearance like parking garages.

Diamond Antenna NR770HB Dualband VHF/UHF Mobile Antenna

To fold the NR770HB, simply pull up on the mast and tip over the antenna.

Diamond Antenna NR770HB Dualband VHF/UHF Mobile Antenna

The NR770HB's connector type is a gold-plated UHF/PL-259.

Diamond Antenna DL30A Compact Dummy Load

Never hit the transmit button on your transceiver without a 50-ohm load connected to the transceiver's output. If you do, you will damage your transceiver. Many authorities suggest not even turning on a transceiver without a 50-ohm load connected to to transceiver's unused output. The Diamond Antenna DL30A Compact Dummy provides the required 50 ohms of impedance when an antenna is not mounted for whatever reason.

Icom IC-706 MkIIG HF/VHF/UHV All Mode Mobile Transceiver

Many of today's HF/VHF/UHF mobile transceivers like this Icom IC-706MkIIG feature separate HF and VHF/UHF outputs on the back of the transceiver. Simply scrolling bands on the radio might damage it without 50 ohms of impedance mated to the HF/50 output. Fitting a DL30 Compact Dummy Load to the HF/50 output is cheap insurance against damage to this very expensive transceiver.

Diamond Antenna DL30A Compact Dummy Load

The DL30 measures 30mm in diameter and 75mm in length, so it is small enough to be attached to an unused output of a HF/VHF/UHF transceiver.

Diamond Antenna DL30A Compact Dummy Load

The DL30's power rating is 100 watts peak and 15 watts continuous, and the frequency rating is DC to 500 MHz.

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

The Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount allows you to raise or lower your mobile antenna from 0 to 90 degrees from inside the vehicle with the touch of a button. This is our favorite mount for a VHF/UHF antenna.

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

The K9000LRM accepts ground-independent antennas up to 45" in height and up to 1 lb. in weight.

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

Recommend antennas include the Diamond Antenna NR770HB Dualband VHF/UHF Mobile Antenna.

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

The K9000LRM includes all of the components necessary to mount the unit onto a luggage rack or roof rack. The K9000LRM is powered through a 12v DC cigarette plug and the power wires extend a full 20' for placement anywhere on your vehicle. On our own vehicles, we prefer to hardwire the K9000 instead of using the 12v cigarette plug.

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

If your roof rack has flooring, you may dispense with the luggage rack mounting pieces entirely and mount the K9000 body directly onto the flooring for the lowest possible profile. This is our preferred method of mounting the K9000.

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

Mounted in this fashion, the K9000 gives a very clean and finished installation.

dDiamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

The K9000 is powered by a small electric motor.

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

The motor turns a worm drive, which in turn turns several different gear reductions to lower the antenna.

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

When the gears reach a certain point, sensors are tripped, the motor loses continuity,

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

and the antenna rests in the vertical position.

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

To lower the antenna, just push the "down" button and the K9000 will lower the antenna. The same type of sensors within the K9000 stop the swing arc at the low point.

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

Swing arc may be adjusted from as little as 45 to 90 degrees.

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

Why is being able to lower the antenna an advantage? The antenna is the most vulnerable yet most important portion of the mobile radio system. If your antenna fails, you cannot transmit without damaging your transceiver. Overhanging branches and ceilings will snag an antenna and break it. When entering low-clearance areas, it is advisable to lower the antenna to prevent damaging it.

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

If you don't lower your antenna in low-clearance areas and employ a fixed antenna mount, you stand a good chance of suffering antenna carnage on the trail. An antenna in this condition is not usable for transmitting, as the characteristic impedance will have been altered substantially and the antenna will lose resonance.

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

In addition to lowering the antenna, the K9000 also employs two different safety devices to lessen the likelihood of antenna breakage. The first safety device is internal spring loading. In the photo above, the antenna is set in the vertical position but is being pushed rearward. The internal spring that otherwise holds the antenna in the vertical position gives when there is rearward pressure on the antenna.

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

Even though set to the vertical position, the K9000 will "give" when the antenna hits an overhead object. When the antenna is pushed beyond the swing limits of the spring, the second safety device will come into play. An external spring-loaded and splined dog clutch lets the K9000LRM release in a collision and further lessens the likelihood of antenna breakage if the antenna catches on an overhead object.

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mounts

The clutch system really works. In the photo above, the clutches have given when John's two antennas hit overhead objects. The antennas were saved against breakage.

Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount

An alternative to the K9000 Motorized Mount is the the Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Mobile Antenna Mount.

Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount

The K540 is adjustable antenna mount designed for fitment to mirror arms and luggage racks from 1/2" to 1" in diameter. The K540 is ideal for mounting onto Safety Devices Roof Racks that have not been fitted with flooring, as the Safety Devices Roof Racks use 1" diameter tubing.

Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount

In this photo, the K540 has been installed onto one of our shop carts, which also use 1" diameter tubing.

Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount

The K540 mounts to the 1" tube with four screws. The K540 is very secure once the four screws are tightened.

Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount

The K540 accepts antennas up to 45" in height and up to 1 lb. in weight. Recommend antennas include the Diamond Antenna NR770HB Dualband and CR320A Triband VHF/UHF Mobile Antennas.

Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount

The K540 is adjustable in two different planes. The first adjustment mechanism permits the antenna to be tilted radially relative to the mounting bar. Adjusting the antenna in this plane is very simple.

Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount

A splined tension screw keeps the antenna positioned in the lateral plane.

Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount

Just loosen the tension screw with an allen wrench. Tighten the tension screw after achieving the desired angle.

Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount

Cover the tension screw with the supplied weather cap to keep out the elements.

Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount

The second adjustment mechanism permits the antenna to be tilted lengthwise relative to the mounting bar. Swing arc in this plane is 180 degrees.

Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount

To move the antenna in this lengthwise plane, simply loosen the wing nut on the front of the mount. Diamond Antenna employs a wing nut for this adjustment plane so that the user may lower the antenna easily before entering low-clearance areas.

Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount

Taken together, the two adjustment planes give the K540 unmatched versatility for mounting a VHF/UHF antenna to the Safety Devices Roof Racks. One way to mount the K540 to the Highlander Roof Rack is shown above. This Highlander is covered with flooring, so the amateur installed the K540 to the center vertical bar. When the wing nut is loosened, the antenna may be swung down to clear overhead objects.

Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount

This user has no flooring and mounted his K540 to the center horizontal bar of a Highlander Rack. The spare tire blocks swinging down the antenna, but the antenna could otherwise be swung down if required by loosening the K540's wing nut.

Diamond Antenna K540 Mobile Antenna Mount

This user mounted his K540 very low on the front of the Highlander Rack, between two Hella 4000 Euro Beams. When mounted in this fashion, the K540 will not really permit the antenna to be swung down. Fortunately, this amateur is using the NR770HB Dualband VHF/UHF Mobile Antenna, which has its own fold-over feature right above the lower loading coil. When folded over, this NR770HB sits barely above the rack.

Diamond Antenna C213SMA Coaxial Cable Assembly

The Diamond Antenna C213SMA Coaxial Cable Assembly fits almost every Diamond Antenna K-Series Mobile Antenna Mount, including the K9000 and K540 mobile mounts. This is our favorite method to connect a mobile transceiver to a roof-mounted mobile antenna.

Diamond Antenna C213SMA Coaxial Cable Assembly

The C213SMA is composed of 13.5' of RG316 teflon coaxial cable. RG316 coaxial cable is only 1/8" in diameter, very flexible, and very easy to route. Power rating is 350 watts, which is more than plenty for unamplified mobile transceivers.

Diamond Antenna C213SMA Coaxial Cable Assembly

The antenna connector type is a gold-plated UHF/SO-239 for mating with the Diamond Antenna Mobile Antenna Mounts and Diamond Antenna Mobile Antennas.

Diamond Antenna C213SMA Coaxial Cable Assembly

A weather cap is provided to protect the UHF/SO-239 connector from the elements when an antenna is not fitted.

Diamond Antenna C213SMA Coaxial Cable Assembly

The UHF/SO-239 connector mates with almost all Diamond K-Series Mobile Antenna Mounts, including the K540 and K9000.

Diamond Antenna C213SMA Coaxial Cable Assembly Diamond Antenna C213SMA Coaxial Cable Assembly

The C213SMA terminates in a gold-plated SMA connector for fitment to your handheld transceiver,

Diamond Antenna C213SMA Coaxial Cable Assembly

and comes with a SMA/PL-259 adapter for fitment to your mobile transceiver.

Diamond Antenna C101 Coaxial Cable Assembly

The Diamond Antenna C101 Coaxial Cable Assembly is identical to the C213SMA in every way except for length and features a mini-UHF connector instead of the SMA connector. The C101 is 6.5' long while the C213SMA is 13' long. Use the C101 instead of the C213SMA for applications not requiring the C213SMA's reach.

Diamond Antenna C110 Coaxial Cable Extension

The Diamond Antenna C110 Coaxial Cable Extension is designed to extend the reach of the Diamond Antenna C101 Coaxial Cable Assemblies. Power rating is 350 watts.

and is terminated on both ends with gold-plated Mini UHF connectors.

Diamond Antenna C211 Coaxial Cable Assembly

The male Mini UHF connector mates with the female Mini UHF connector on the C101 Coaxial Cable Assemblies.

Diamond Antenna 31005 Replacement Weather Cap

The Diamond Antenna 31005 Replacement Weather Cap protects the UHF/SO-239 connector from corrosion and the elements when the antenna is not mounted.

Diamond Antenna 31005 Replacement Weather Cap

If you have lost your weather cap and do not have your antenna mounted at all times, be sure to cover the UHF/SO-239 connector to maintain its conductivity and peak performance. This UHF/SO-239 connector, though gold plated, is exposed to the elements and will lose conductivity due to corrosion.

Diamond Antenna 31005 Replacement Weather Cap

Keep your connectors covered.

Diamond Antenna RSA3474 SMA/UHF Adapter

The Diamond Antenna RSA3474 SMA/UHF Adapter converts an SMA female to UHF/PL-259 for mounting a handheld transceiver antenna to a mobile antenna mount.

Diamond Antenna K9000LRM Motorized Mobile Antenna Mount

Why would you want to mount a handheld transceiver antenna onto a mobile antenna mount? If you have ever suffered a broken antenna and don't carry a spare, you will know why. An antenna in this condition is not usable, as its characteristic impedance will have been altered substantially and the antenna will lose resonance. Transmitting with a non-resonant antenna will damage the transceiver, so this entire mobile unit is rendered useless because of the broken antenna.

Diamond Antenna RSA3474 SMA/UHF Adapter

If you carry a spare mobile antenna, that is great. However, most people do not. The RSA3474 permits the amateur to mount his handheld transceiver antenna to his mobile antenna mount to create the required 50 ohms of impedance for the mobile transceiver.

Diamond Antenna RSA3474 SMA/UHF Adapter

When transmitting through your mobile transceiver through a handheld transceiver antenna, be careful to set your mobile transceiver for low power or you will smoke your antenna. The Diamond Antenna SRH320A, for example, has a power rating of 10 watts. If you transmit at 50 watts with this antenna, the result will be unpretty.

diamond006 018_.jpg

The RSA3474 is very small, so there's no reason not to carry one along with your other gear.

Diamond Antenna SRH320A Triband VHF/UHF Handheld Transceiver Antenna

The Diamond Antenna SRH320A Triband VHF/UHF Handheld Transceiver Antenna is resonant on the 2-meter, 1.25-meter, and 70-centimeter amateur bands and is also optimized for wideband receive across the 120, 150, 300, 450, and 900 MHz bands.

Diamond Antenna SRH320A Triband VHF/UHF Handheld Transceiver Antenna

The SRH320A is a 1/4-wavelength design on 2 meters and 1.25 meters, and a 1/2-wavelength design providing 4 dBi of gain on 70 centimeters. The SRH320A is 14" tall and weighs 30 grams. Power rating is 10 watts.

Diamond Antenna SRH999 Quadband VHF/UHF Handheld Transceiver Antenna

The SRH320A's connector type is a gold-plated SMA.

SMA Connector

SMA is becoming the standard connector type on the latest-generation handheld transceivers. SMA now easily outnumbers the older BNC connector. All of our handheld transceiver antennas, including the SRH320A, use SMA connectors.

Diamond Antenna SRH320A Triband VHF/UHF Handheld Transceiver Antenna

The SRH320A is ideal for the Kenwood TH-F6A VHF/UHF Handheld Transceiver, as the TH-F6A is capable of transmission on the 144, 220, and 440 MHz bands, the exact bands on which the SRH320A is resonant. The TH-F6A is also capable of wideband receive from 100 kHz to 1.3 GHz, so the SRH320A's wideband receive ability is used.

Diamond Antenna SRH320A Triband VHF/UHF Handheld Transceiver Antenna

However, the SRH320A is so much more than a TH-F6A antenna. Rather, it is a superb all-around antenna for the plethora of new-generation 2m/70cm handheld transceivers with wideband receive capabilities.

Diamond Antenna SRH320A Triband VHF/UHF Handheld Transceiver Antenna

The SRH320A is our favored HT antenna, and we have tried many. Performance exceeds that of much larger antennas, for both receive and transmit. Like the NR770HB mobile antenna (which is our favorite VHF/UHF mobile antenna), the SRH320A is our favorite HT antenna.

Pelican Micro Case

To protect your handheld transceiver and keep it performing well, we recommend transporting it in a Pelican Micro Case.
