Antenna PA1296-70-6AUT and Antenna PA1296-70-6ARG have exactly the same mechanical characteristics. Their parts are completely the same except for the balun. “AUT” can withstand 300 W of power while “ARG” can withstand 100 W of power. Youtube video describes the characteristics of the “AUT” version, it can also be seen for the “ARG” version, as the only difference is in the dipole, which is already on the antenna and does not need to be adjusted:
