Product Code – 11M3TORLIGHT

A 3 element Yagi Antenna for the 11m band from the Vortex ‘Lightweight’ range. Manufactured from lightweight but extremely strong construction grade 6082-T6 Aluminium stock, this full size computer optimised antenna is an excellent balance between weight and strength. It’s a great antenna for either base or portable. When out in the field it can be erected easily by one person. Antenna is supplied with all hardware except boom to mast mount (see below). As with other Vortex Yagi designs, we include a hairpin match which DC grounds the antenna – thus reducing static and noise. One owner had S9 noise levels on their old antenna. A new installation of this antenna reduced the levels to below S1. Front to back ratio is also very good at over 30db thus reducing unwanted QRM and noise.

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.

“Hi Steve – just sending some pics of the beam you sent me, all is working well and I had no problems with building her up. Perfect swr @ 27.555MHz Only used her the once but had some very good signal reports back, very happy! – Hope to use more over next few weekends.
