Azimuth radiation pattern is impressive.
I hope to participate with it in the 3. subreg contest soon.
Feeling with this Yagi is excellent.
In 3. sub regional contest. I used it in approx. 7,5 m agl. with 10 m coax H1000. I was very satisfied with the antenna, I was able to contact DX like OR6T or PA1VHF.
The SWR value was cca 1:1.05, which is the best value I have measured using different antennas ever before.
The radiation pattern is best as well.
The antennas came as promised – very solid packed, quickly assembled without any problems. Must say they cannot be done better – super.
Today I removed old system and raised the new four antennas in “H” stack. Initial test seems to be fine. The horizontal pattern indicates that antennas are very very sharp – but that we knew.
Again thanks for all – communication, delivery, mechanical quality, electrical performance and fully recommendable.
