I WILL MODEL THIS ANTENNA IN ANY TUBE SIZE OR TAPER SECHDULE FOR YOU, CONTACT ME VIA EMAIL
This antenna was designed for 9A3OS
This is a high-gain, wideband OWA (Optimised Wideband Array) Yagi which covers the whole of the 15m band with an SWR of less than1.1:1 from 21-21.45MHz. It is a non-crtical antenna so both metric and imperial sized tubing can be used with the same dimensions. This antenna has a three stage taper.
This Antenna has been modelled using NEC4 and confirmed by FEKO. This is thousands of dollars of the very latest antenna design software available and the results are highly accurate. When loading into your software, you will see similar SWR but not the same. Please do not alter the model, build to these dimensions for the best results.
Contact me if you are unsure what correction (if any) you require for the element holders/stand-offs you will use or any other questions you may have.
