• G0KSC designed 3el, 40M & 6el 20M (Force 12)

    This antenna uses the G0KSC OP-DES design on both 40m and 20m to provide full-band coverage on each.

  • 6 x 7el WOS 50MHz LFA Yagi

    175' fully rotating tower and 6 x 7el 50MHz WOS LFA Yagis at W7EW

  • 3 el 24MHz LFA Yagi by InnovAntennas

    Serious low-noise performance for the HF bands too!

  • 4 x 6el 50MHz LFA Yagis @ DL5WP

    Those that do their research and want low noise Yagis choose G0KSC designs!

  • 4 x 11el 144MHz LFA's @ F3EGA

    Excellent G/T figure antenna array ensuring F3EGA can hear and be heard!

  • G0KSC Monoband 14MHz Log Periodic

    With a boom of just 2m and F/B in excess of 20dB including full-band coverage, this is a super-compact Field day antenna!

  • 4 x 24el 432MHz LFA @ PA2V

    PA2V selected G0KSC LFAs (built by InnovAntennas) when he wanted the very best in EME performance!

  • 4el 27MHz LFA Yagi by InnovAntennas

    A 4 element 27MHz LFA by InnovAntennas. The LFA can handle 20KW plus and does for many radio stations, commerical and hobby!

G0KSC SC0406M 7el 70Mhz  OWA Yagi Antenna with a 4.353 Metre Length Boom

This is a nice DX bean for 70Mhz. As always it has a nice flat SWR curve and is built with in a non-critical format so any small errors you make whilst constructing will not have a huge impact on performance.

I recommend this to be built from a 5 metre length of of 1 inch or 1.25 inch box section aluminum.This should not need any support

Dimensions in Metres

Element spacing:

  • Ref =       0
  • Driven =  .411
  • D1 =       .658
  • D2 =       1.706
  • D3 =       3.128
  • D4 =       4.353

Element sizes per element half:

  • Ref =       1.058
  • Driven =   1.018
  • D1 =        .977
  • D2 =        .958
  • D3 =        .942
  • D4 =        .928

Performance figures @ 70.250Mhz:

  • Froward Gain: 11.85dBi free space
  • Front to Back: 26.31dB
  • Radiation angle at 10 Metres above ground: 10 degrees

 

Element diameter:

Each element is made out of single piece 1/2 inch (12.7mm) aluminum tubing Each element half length needs to be doubled in order to gain your total element size. No difference is length needs to be calculated for the 1inch or 1,1/4 inch boom as the elements sit high enough above the boom for the boom to have no influence.

NOTE:

You can build this antenna with 13mm diameter tubing using the same parameters above. Slightly higher front to back ratio and forward gain will be seen along with a narrower SWR curve.

 

For construction information see 'G0KSC insulators' and the UKSMG article from the main menu on the home page.
