Super Gain 6m 8elements DX-EME-Contest Yagi 6m8DXP
The best low noise 6m 8elements DX-EME-Contest Yagi 6m8DXP antenna with a boom length of about 10m. Extreme low sidelobes will ensure the quiet band and ability to hear weak signals with ease. Very solid construction that can withstand strong gusts of winds of more than 150 km/h! Guy rope support is specially made for high winds, heavy rains, or strong Sun. Designed tapered elements reduce wind load, as well as vibrations in the wind. 6m8DXP is very easy to set up. Everything is labeled, just put number to number. No need to tune any length or position of elements. All is already pre-tuned for perfect radiation pattern and SWR.
The old name of the antenna was PA50-8-10BGP

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 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.
Everything is included in the antenna box: Antenna, balun with connector, and bracket. Yours is to assemble and have fun!
