Extra High Gain 70cm EME Super Yagi antenna PA432-41-12

By coincidence I found this antenna earlier this year. Had great communication with the designer and manufacturer resulting in a modified design (it used to be 42 elements) that is now for sale, the higher gain and better G/T figures putting this antenna on top of the food chain. So went for it and in the process of installing 8 of these monsters for a total gain figure of 31 dBi.
I am impressed with the quality of the antenna and the reproducibility (many manufacturers have issues in making 8 identical yagis!)
Seen the size of the array I asked for several modifications on the feed point arrangement, all of them done a no extra cost. Goran, YU1CF, who build these was extremely helpful in all details.

Here are some specs for the individual yagi:

Free Space Forward Gain: 22.1 dBi
Front to Back Ratio: 37 dB
3 dB Horizontal Beamwidth: 15.2°
3 dB Vertical Beamwidth: 15.4°
G/T 13.15

Compared to my old array (8x 39JXX70) I had up many years ago its a huge improvement in gain, F/B and G/T.
