6m 3elements Antenna 6m3DXB for DX and Portable
6m 3elements Antenna 6m3DXB is designed to withstand high winds. Relative short boom will produce wide azimuth radiation pattern. So no need to all the time turn antenna in certain directions.
What does 6m3DXB mean?
6m – Magic band antenna 50MHz
3 – Elements
DX – Intended for use in DX part of band 50-50.5MHz with excellent SWR
B – Maximum boom part is 146cm
Everything is included in the antenna box: Antenna, balun with connector, and bracket. 50 MHz Ham Radio Yagi is perfect for field days since it’s very easy to assemble. 10 minutes is sufficient. All antenna parts are labeled, so it is extremely easy to assemble. Just put number to number.
The antenna is pre-tuned, so there is no need to move, cut or use a rasp file for any element to get perfect SWR on the intended frequency range. A short boom, wide-band 3el antenna covers the entire DX band with SWR <1.2 from 50 MHz to 50.5 MHz.
Elements are tapered to reduce vibrations at high winds. Boom is just 1.46m long. Since this Ham Radio antenna has 3el it is very easy to set up. The antenna is very good for field day since it is lightweight or a permanent setup since the antenna is very sturdy. Starting element diameter is 12 mm, the middle part is 10mm, and 8mm ends. Tapered elements will reduce the wind load. Excellent 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 when there is an opening you don’t need long antennas.
The default maximum power input is 1000 W. Optional up to 8000 W.
Enjoy the rising popularity and exciting contacts on the 6m band.
