6m 2el Rear Mount Antenna 6m2DXR 50-50.5MHz
50 MHz 6m 2el Rear Mount Antenna 6m2DXR for balcony or tower side use. Perfect for field days with lightweight construction or even for permanent setup.
This 6m 2el Rear Mount Antenna 6m2DXR has the widest possible azimuth radiation pattern. Good for vertical stacking in a permanent setup since this wide angle allows listening to ham radio stations without frequent rotator movement. It is good for the E-sporadic season since where you don’t need much gain.
The old name of the antenna was PA50-2-1.4RB

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 performance 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!
