DX Engineering is the exclusive North American distributor of finely built, ruggedly constructed, and extensively tested high-performance DX Commander antenna systems designed by company founder and director Callum McCormick, M0MCX.

Based in England’s Midlands region, family-run DX Commander has established a worldwide reputation for its innovative vertical HF antennas that boast proven results in real-world operating conditions. Now DX Engineering makes it easier than ever for North American operators to enjoy the advantages of adding a DX Commander antenna to their arsenal of permanent and portable setups.

DX Commander antennas feature:

  • Efficient resonance on every HF band of operation
  • Low SWR without the need for traps, coils, or antenna tuners
  • Low take-off angle
  • Power rating of 1500W SSB/CW and 375W for FT8 and other digital modes

The company’s antennas are based on the same principles as a fan dipole, with several vertical wire elements of various resonant lengths connected to a common feedpoint. Antenna kits come with high-quality parts for ease of construction and long-term use, including a sturdy telescopic mast, stainless fasteners, aluminum ground and driven plates, spreader plates, EzyClamp stay-up kit, antenna wire, guying rope, and shock-cord.

DX Engineering is pleased to carry these DX Commander antennas:


Signature 9 HF Multi-Band Vertical Antenna

  • Heavy-duty freestanding antenna, 29.5 feet
  • 80-10M coverage
  • Ideal for installing in a backyard—perfect for HOA situations
  • SWR bandwidth is typically 300 kHz on any band delivering a perfect match with no tuner required

Signature 12.4 HF Multi-Band Vertical Antenna

  • 40.68 feet
  • 80-6M coverage
  • 80M band is a loaded quarter-wave, 30M as a colinear and a full quarter-wave on 40, 20, and 17M. The 12M and 10M bands tune on a top loaded three-quarter wavelength element, giving close to a 5/8 pattern. A tilt base is not necessary as the Signature 12.4 antenna is able sit directly on the ground; it tunes best with the base close to the radials.

Signature 18 Nebula eXtreme HF Multi-Band Vertical Antenna

  • 59 feet
  • 80-6M coverage
  • 80M element is fully vertical and top loaded via a small linear loaded section for fine tuning, giving you better nighttime DX capability. There is also the option of running 60M as a full quarter wave or the 20M element as a three-quarter wavelength for improved gain. Because the antenna is almost resonant regardless of where you tune, the eXtreme Nebula is a fabulous shortwave antenna, achieving amazing listening results with broadcast, weather fax, RTTY, etc. across the spectrum.
