Antennas-Amplifiers Product Benefits. A Major advance in antenna design.

  • F/B and G/T superiority. All antennas have been calculated using state-of-the-art full 3D EM modeling 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 the EZNEC program.
  • No tuning antennas. Before dispatch, we assemble and test each antenna’s characteristics. No need to tune any 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. Everything is included in the box: Antenna, balun, bracket, and guy rope support if needed. Yours is to assemble and have fun!
  • Mechanical properties. We believe that our antennas are the world’s strongest antennas and are mechanically constructed much better than any antennas from other manufacturers.

  1. Ian W6TCP

    I installed four CROSS antennas yesterday.
    I am very pleased with the design and build quality. I think they will last me a very long time.
    Thank you again.

    8 x 70cmCROSS42DX 42elements EME system at N1AV

    With the new array, I could work OZ9AAR, which has 4 Yagis and 32w at the antenna feed.
    The week before I was able to grab two Yagi station that had 80w at the antenna feed.
    The 8 x 70cmCROSS42DX yagis work well.
