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 excellent electrical and mechanical attributes 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 in a couple of minutes.
Everything is included in the antenna box: Antenna, balun with connector, and bracket. Yours is to assemble and have fun!
What others say about 6m6DXD (PA50-6-6DG)
“The antenna was very well packed in a very hard cover so there was no damage due to transport.
Today I installed the antenna. The installation was very easy as you marked all parts perfectly in a way that a mistake is impossible.
The quality of the antenna material is great also the mechanical workmanship is fine. It took me about 1 hour to mount the antenna and another hour to install it on the tower.
The SWR is – as you promised – very low in the ordered frequency range.
Please find attached a picture of the antenna and an SWR plot I made with my VNA
