The Predator 30K antenna is made from high strength and lightweight aluminum.  The larger coils on the 30K equal larger power handling capabilities.  The 30K can handle up to 50,000 watts of power and can be used on CB or 10 meter bands.  To handle the power appropriately, the Predator 30K has a 3' aluminum tube instead of a normal thin whip.  The 30K is 100% American made and can be easily disassembled in case a part needs replacing.  There are 3 shaft sizes available on the 30K including 9", 12" & 17" which can be helpful in determining the total height necessary for your antenna to transmit optimally.

Installation

The Predator 30K has a 3/8" x 24 threaded stud that can be installed on any similar mount, but due to it's size, we recommend a heavy duty stud mount.  The aluminum tube slides into the opening at the top and can be fastened down with the allen screw.

The range of the Predator 30K will vary greatly depending on surroundings, weather, etc.  You can normally expect these ranges: 7-10 Miles Sizes

The Predator 30K antenna comes in 3 different shaft sizes.  9", 12" & 17" The main thing you want to remember when choosing your shaft size is you want a large portion of the antenna to be above your roofline for maximum performance.

Tuning

The Predator 30K antenna has an allen screw easy SWR tuning.  If the SWR is greater on Channel 40 than on Channel 1, then you have an electrically long antenna and need to make it smaller by pushing the tube farther in.  If the SWR is greater on Channel 1 than on Channel 40, then you have a electrically short antenna and need to pull the tube out or you can add a spring or quick disconnect to make it longer.
