Product Code – 6M3TORHEAVY

A 3 element Yagi Antenna for the 6m band from our Tornado ‘Heavy Duty’ range. Manufactured from lightweight but extremely strong construction grade 6082-T6 Aluminium stock with a heavy duty boom. The antenna includes 8mm Element Brackets, Heavy Duty Polyamide Element Clamps and comes complete with M10 Stainless Steel Hardware. Antenna is supplied with all hardware except boom to mast mount (see below).

SETTING A RESONANT FREQUENCY
By default this antenna is set to resonance around the lower end of 50MHz, this means it will adequately cover at least 1.5MHz bandwidth. As 6m is quite a wide band, users may need to adjust the driven element and hairpin match slightly should they wish to move the resonant point higher in the band.Vortex also manufacture a ‘6 Meter Wideband’ Yagi antenna that has a slightly reduced gain but has great front to back and covers the full 6m band at under an SWR of 2 to 1. If you are a ‘DX’ hunter (lower band ends) but also work the ‘FM’ portion, then this antenna may well be a better option. To see more, Link here.

VORTEX BOOM TO MAST PLATES
All VORTEX Antennas can be shipped WITHOUT any boom to mast mounting plates. Select this option from the drop-down menu when purchasing. Other options include the choice of mounting plates and complete mounting solutions with U-Bolts and Brackets.
