The AXE1 extender allows an Elecraft AX1 whip to be used on 40 and 30 meters. It adds 6 inches (15 cm) of overall length.
An AX line antenna with an AXE1 can be attached directly to a hand-held transceiver, or supported by an Elecraft AXB1 whip bipod for table-top use.
An AX line whip and AXE1 together break down into 3 pieces, each 6 inches long or shorter, allowing them to fit into a pocket or very small bag such as the Elecraft CS40 (along with a KX2 transceiver).
AN ANTENNA TUNER IS REQUIRED BECAUSE THE AX-LINE WHIP + AXE1 EXTENDER IS VERY NARROW BANDED.
