Force 12 FPA-15 Flagpole Antenna:

The Force 12 FPA-15 "flagpole" antenna is designed to
be a stealth antenna, yet permit a ham to get a signal
on most ham bands. It is a flagpole about 16 feet tall,
making it a quarter wave on 20 meters. It can be used
on other ham bands with an antenna tuner.

This one was removed from the QTH of a silent key. The
base could not be removed, but can be purchased from
Force 12, or fabricated.

Force 12 sells these for about $500. Buy this one for $200,
with the paper work.  Pick up near Ocala FL preferred.

Flag is not included!

it can also be used on the 10 and 12 meter ham bands.

I do not think this antenna has ever been used. The XYL
