Portable and stationary 6m 4elements Antenna 6m4DX
Prepare yourself for a new sunspot cycle 25 with 6m 4elements Antenna 6m4DX. Enjoy the rising popularity and exciting contacts on the 6m “Magic” band. 4el antenna can be used as portable or stationary. The antenna combines its strong 30 x 30mm boom with a strong “Goliath” bracket which will make sure the antenna is always solid. Elements are tapered to reduce vibrations at high winds. The starting element diameter is 12 mm. Tapered elements will reduce the wind load.
Up to 15 minutes is enough for assembling even if you see the antenna for the first time. Everything is labeled, just put number to number. The antenna can be assembled with hand tools, as well as with power tools.
The old name of the antenna was PA50-4-3B

Read the short review about the 6m4DX PA50-4-3B antenna at eHam.net:
This antenna is excellent!
Easy to assemble, easy to dismantle. You can work mobile or work from home. It always performs well.
First of all Antennas Amplifiers company does not deliver your antenna if previously they do not fully test it, check all parts, and measure all values. They do not leave customers without answers. This is important!
Often I even listen on a 40m band with this antenna and hear so well and with minimum noise almost like it is FM. The side rejection is excellent.
The gain and F/B ratio is as advertised.
Assembling is easy and fast. Every element is marked; instructions are clear; materials and plastics are all of very good quality. You can not go wrong dealing with this company. The owner is a friendly fellow who responds to all your questions quickly and accurately.
Antennas Amplifiers generally made excellent products for more than 30 years. I have two of their beams and both working as advertised.
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!
