V-MAST with air-dropable carrying bag

The Varible Multi-band Antenna System, Tubular (V-MAST) is Wingate Durham's original lightweight, powerful solution for the deployment of HF, VHF, or UHF antennas, offering versatile frequency range capabilities and convenient portability for a single operator. The efficiency of the V-MAST is demonstrated by a setup time under 5 minutes and a breakdown time under 2 minutes, a considerable improvement over conventional antenna systems. Additionally, its power capacity of 350 watts and multi-band compatibility make it a highly versatile piece of kit.
