28MHz 6el LFA Yagi

A 6 element LFA Yagi for 28MHz with a 11.960mtr boom

Revised September 2010 v1.0

Premium commercial versions of this antenna at Innovantennas

 

I WILL MODEL THIS ANTENNA IN ANY TUBE SIZE OR TAPER SECHDULE FOR YOU, CONTACT ME VIA EMAIL

 

This is a high-gain, wideband LFA (Loop Fed Array) Yagi which covers 28 - 28.5MHz with an SWR of less than1.3:1. It has options with both UK/USA and European sized tube and has a 3 section 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 or require different element diameter.
