Here’s some exciting news for hams who are in the market for a solidly-constructed, transportable, easy-to-use, and lightweight but rugged antenna system that makes a smart choice for your POTA, SOTA, IOTA, and EMCOMM operations.

DX Engineering is pleased to now carry the Ranger 80 precision-made portable antenna system from REZ, a Texas-based company that was launched with the goal of “improving the design and construction of amateur radio antenna systems,” per its website. “With a focus on reliability, we design easy-to-use antenna systems made from premium materials for a refined user experience.”
