Workman Electronics T601 Discone Multiband VHF / 220 / UHF Amateur Ham Radio Antenna
Discone antennas are great for when broadband application or frequency range is required. These antennas are capable of operating at a VSWR of 1.5:1 over a wide frequency range, making them extremely desirable for those wishing to work an extended range of frequencies. The small size is also advantages for those who do not have the luxury of space to install larger beam or dipole style antennas.
Simple construction includes screwing in the short elements on top to create the "Disc" and the longer elements on the bottom to create the "Cone"

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Would the T601 discone be any good for satellite operations - primarily FM and SSB birds? I'm looking for something with high-angle and overhead coverage. I already have a Comet tri-band vertical for lower angle coverage. Thanks ...
Discones are not ideal for working AmSat, but will suffice for low in the sky passes. They are not good at overhead. Adding a ground plane will improve. With any antenna your results will vary based on your location and surroundings.
