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!

1 review for 6m 6el Magic Band Antenna 6m6DX

  1. Jamie

    I am amazed by the difference on 6m with your beam from my old 6ele, noise level is basically nil on the meter even with preamp2 in!
    Just tested directivity :
    180 deg ea7 S9 ssb
    90 deg ea7 nil !
    0 deg S1-2

    The first QSO on the 29th of May with the beam was K1ZM J, then ZP9HTL, and lots of PY’s!
    Then on the 30th decoding VK8AW at 14000kms, he also flagged me as I was calling CQ, I worked with him last year!

    Much better than the old beam, excellent
