I got the PA162-10-5AV marine tracking yagis up yesterday.

I’ve received out to 553 km distance during the night to King Island Lighthouse. That’s pretty good I think.

There has been some further development since the last email.


Have now been able to hear out to 1073 km on the marine tracking array. Keeping in mind that marine tracking transmitters are only 12 watts FM.

  1. Howard

    Received the PA162-10-5AV a couple of days ago.
    I just wanted to say it is the best engineered antenna I have ever purchased!
    Your packaging was excellent and the box arrived here in the UK in perfect condition.
    I really liked the A1/B1 … A10/B10 tags on the metalwork. It allowed me to construct the antenna without any issues or guesswork.
    Kind regards, Howard G1MUM
