2m LEO Pack Antenna 2m8CROSS 4+4 Element Yagi
Rear Mount 2m LEO Pack Antenna 2m8CROSS 8 elements used as part of LEO Pack. The advantage of the rear mount is reflected in the fact that is possible to put an antenna on any metal mast. No need to put on fiberglass.
2m LEO Pack Antenna 2m8CROSS is designed to cover the complete 2m band 144 – 146 MHz and any radio modes like CW, SSB, FM, Q65, FT8, and all kinds of communications like DX-ing, Contesting, FM work, and LEO satellites…
Used as part of LEO Kit-Pack 2m and 70cm CROSS RHCP Yagi for Satellites with added RHCP Kit
2m LEO Pack Antenna 2m8CROSS For Ham Radio Satellites LEO
What does 2m8CROSS mean?
- 2m – 2m band full coverage 144-146MHz
- 8 – 8 elements, 4 elements of horizontal polarization, and 4 elements of vertical polarization
- CROSS – CROSS Yagi antenna has horizontal and vertical elements – separated on a single boom, the antenna is mounted in a “+” format.

Antennas-Amplifiers Product Benefits. A Major advance in Amateur Radio antenna design.
- F/B and G/T superiority.
All antennas have been calculated using state-of-the-art full 3D Electromagnetic Simulation Software including the influence of the boom, bracket, baluns, and connectors. The performance of antennas designed using these techniques is exceptional, far better than antennas designed using “wire” programs.
Comparison of EM simulation software
- No tuning antennas
Before dispatch, we assemble each antenna and test antenna characteristics. That means you may expect exceptionally good electrical and mechanical attributes including low SWR across the designed range immediately after assembling.
No need to tune the dipole, or any other element to get perfect SWR on the intended frequency range. Everything is pre-tuned.
- Easy to set up
Everything is labeled, just put number to number. The antenna can be assembled with hand tools in a couple of minutes.
Everything is included in the antenna box: Antenna, balun with connector, and bracket. Yours is to assemble and have fun!
If this 8 elements 2m LEO Pack Antenna 2m8CROSS is too small:
Look at bigger 14 elements 2m CROSS Antenna 2m14CROSS
Or the ultimate 20 elements 2m CROSS Wideband Antenna 2m20CROSSWB
