:: 15M 5el mono


This antenna is constructed by ZX-yagi. The 5el monobander has got a boomlength of 10m (30.5 feet) and is a great performer. I got very impressed about the ZX-yagi engineering, even though I had to modify the gamma match a bit to get the construction to fit and that is the only negative thing I have to say about it. Elements are really thick and its a 60mm boom, no Swedish winter will break this antenna, that is for sure.

It is mounted about 12m above the ground and is turned with an old slow Ematator 1103MXX.

You can see some pictures of the antenna below.
