6 meter 6 elements Low Noise Yagi for DX-ing and Contesting PA50-6-6BG
Low Noise High Gain PA50-6-6BG will make sure you can hear weak signals and give you extra edge you need in contests or just enjoying the Ham Radio Hobby. 6 Element 50 MHz Yagi provides stunning performance across the DX band: 50 – 50.5 MHz.
Major step forward in Ham Radio communication.
Antenna has been calculated with the latest full 3D Electromagnetic Simulation Software, with included the influence of the boom, brackets and connectors.
Performances of such way designed antenna are extraordinary better than antennas “designed” with just wire programs like EZNEC Pro/4 – NEC v5.0, 4NEC2, MMANA, AO or YO that can’t calculate influence of any metallic structure near the antenna elements.
That will lead to wrong predicted antenna performance like gain (about -0.2 to -0.5 dB), SWR (when tuned often very sharp resonance) and specially F/B (up to -20 dB worse than predicted) and accordingly absolute wrong G/T. Much worse than predicted. Just excellent on paper or web page but not in reality.
Calculating with full 3D EM Software gives opportunity for uncompromised performance. Much better than any other world competition. High gain, heavy suppression of all side lobes. Solid construction that can withstand strong gusts of wind of more than 160 km/h!
Guy rope support is specially made for high winds, heavy rains or strong Sun. Designed tapered elements reduces wind-load, as well as vibrations in the wind.
Pre tuned antenna:
Before dispatch, we assemble each and every antenna and test antenna characteristics. That means you can expect all the electrical and mechanical characteristics including low SWR across the designed range immediately after assembling.
No need to move, cut, tune or use rasp for any element to get perfect SWR on intended frequency range. Everything is pre tuned.
That lead also to another very important detail.
When assemble and test each antenna is complete with all washers, nuts, bolts guy rope supports etc.
When packing all parts are already on antenna. Without possibilities to “forget” important parts to put in the box. So you will always receive complete antenna what we tested just before dispatching.
Antenna does not have power limit, only limitations are in used balun and antenna connector.
Default maximum power input is 1000 W.
|Antenna label||Maximum Input Power|
Antenna Power Rating does not affect electrical or mechanical characteristics of the antenna. PA50-6-6BG, PA50-6-6BGP, PA50-6-6BGE, PA50-6-6BGEX have the same characteristics, only difference is in antenna maximum input power.
Like all our antennas, this PA50-6-6BG antenna is a full package. Everything is included in the antenna box. The antenna, balun with the connector and the bracket with the clamps. Designed to last.

Azimuth Radiation Pattern of PA50-6-6BG antenna
Radiation Pattern of the 50-6-6BG antenna is same as the PA50-6-6BGP, PA50-6-6BGE and PA50-6-6BGEX antennas, as the power rating does not disturb the radiation pattern.
Extreme suppression of the side lobes, and excellent front to back:
