A 3 element Yagi Antenna for the 15m 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 follows the enhanced computer optimisation for a 3 element Yagi antennas which has the driven element biased slightly forward of center. This configuration gives the best optimum performance and bandwidth with the system covering the whole of the 15m band at gain levels between 8.12 and 8.63dbi.

The front to back ratio also never falls below 20db and reaches a peak at around 27db at 21.300Mhz. During evaluation, we saw the test antenna with a very low SWR across the whole band – never exceeding 1.3 to 1. The antenna includes Heavy Duty 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).

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 complete mounting solutions.
