2Meter 10element World Best GT Antenna 2m10DXAP DX EME
2Meter 10element World Best GT Antenna 2m10DXAP for ultimate DXing, contesting, and EME. The relatively small size lightweight and best of the best suppression of all side lobes makes this antenna suitable for any purpose. Contesting or DX – EME expedition for best results is something common for this antenna. The packed size of just 1.2m fits perfectly in a car or airplane.
The old name of the antenna was PA144-10-6AGP and PA144-10-6AP

2Meter 10element World Best GT Antenna 2m10DXAP G/T Calculations
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 excellent electrical and mechanical characteristics 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.
Everything is included in the antenna box: Antenna, balun with connector, and bracket. Yours is to assemble and have fun!
