£450.00 — £490.00

Product Code – 20M3TORHEAVY

A 3 element Yagi Antenna for the 20m 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 Heavy Duty Element Brackets, Heavy Duty Polyamide Element Clamps and comes complete with M10 Stainless Steel Hardware.

All Vortex 3 element heavy duty Yagis are computer optimised to give the best overall gain, front to back ratio and pattern for a given boom length. In most instances the boom length may seem slightly longer than other designs as we are always keen to retain the combination of gain and bandwidth. 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 mounting plates and complete mounting solutions with U-Bolts and Brackets.

See what our buyers says about this antenna…
“Steve – I’m over the moon with this antenna. Build quality is about the best you will get anywhere. Performance is exceptional with a really big front front to back.
Tests on a poor band was giving the Vortex about 6-7 ‘S’ units up on my old Comet. The Vortex is also 3 ‘S’ units up on the ‘Ultrabeam’ 3 element used by another op who is local to me and running similar antenna heights and output. – Stunning all round with excellent customer service – I’ll be back for more hardware that’s for sure! – 73 Tom G1IZQ

“Hi Steve, Hope you are well – Just as an update I’m working from home and have been for the past 7 weeks. The Yagi has and continues to behave impeccably, even despite poor propagation it’s worked a JA station who was running 50w mobile. Quite a number of ZL stations and this morning and a WH6 who was using 100w and a G5RV, all on SSB. I have also had almost daily QSO’s with ‘E51JD Jim on the South Cook Islands’. Attached is a pic of the Yagi. Many thanks & best regards, Ian G0UWK
