Magic Band 6m 5elements Antenna 6m5DX
Excellent 6m 5elements Antenna 6m5DX for “Magic” band DXing. Designed for stationary or portable use. The antenna combines a strong tapered boom to reduce the wind area, improve mechanical stability, and reduce vibrations. A strong “RA” bracket will make sure the antenna will be always in a certain direction. 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 20 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 PA50-5-4.3B

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!
