What Is A Mopole?
Mopole is the RF Industries trademark name for our range of ground independent Mobile diPOLE antennas. The biggest advantage of a Mopole antenna is that it can be mounted virtually anywhere. They are most popular as an alternative to roof mount antennas. No holes need to be drilled - and the antenna delivers superior performance.
Silver oxide is the only oxide (that we know of ) that is conductive. This is one reason why PolyPhaser’s N-type coax connectors are all silver with gold centre pins. Copper oxide is not conductive and the proper application of joint compound will prevent oxidation.
Knowledge of corrosion can make the difference between a good site that stays on the air and one which needs a lot of maintenance after a short period of time.
