World Best G/T 2m 16Elements Super Yagi Antenna 2m16DX12
Superior 2m 16Elements Super Yagi Antenna 2m16DX12 beats all shorter and up to 1.2m longer antennas in gain, G/T performance, and suppression of all sidelobes.
Excellent for VHF contests as a single antenna or in the stack. If you don’t want to be disturbed by other stations you will need a maximum gain Yagi antenna to dig weak signals successfully. This 16-element super Yagi antenna is the best choice. EME is possible with 50W even less.

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!
The old name of the antenna was PA144-16-12DGP and PA144-16-12BGP
