2 meter CROSS Yagi 14 elements PA144-CROSS-14-3.5AP-RHCP Big Leo Pack Measured Coupling Between Antennas (Orthogonality)

Excellent results achieved -30 dB. Much better than Leif SM5BSZ suggested:

“The NEC simulations above show that an isolation of 20 dB is sufficient. This means that the obvious way of checking a cross Yagi is to connect one of the feed lines to a transmitter with known output, and a power meter and a dummy load to the other. The attenuation is then measured directly through the power arriving at the dummy load. If it is below -20 dB compared to the transmitted power everything is fine. ”

This is the best antenna I have mounted so far when looking at material quality!
Initial test via RS-44 satellite is very good, more gain compared with my old 6 el Yagis. I also think the antenna has less noise.
