Product Code – 15M3TORLIGHT
A 3 element Yagi Antenna for the 15m band from the Vortex ‘Lightweight’ range. Manufactured from lightweight but extremely strong construction grade 6082-T6 Aluminium stock, this full size computer optimised antenna with superb forward gain.

As 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 by one person. Antenna is supplied with all hardware with the option to included a full boom to mast kit that will fit a 2 or 2.5 inch pole.

As with other Vortex Yagi designs, we include a hairpin match which DC grounds the antenna – thus reducing static and noise. Front to back ratio is also very good at nearly 30db at band center and well over 20db across the whole band. The photos also show the excellent bandwidth, with the SWR never exceeding 1.2 to 1 anywhere across the whole band. Installation images show the antenna prior to having the final SO239 coax socket fitted.

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.

Here’s what one of our customers says about this antenna…
” Hi Steve – antenna was built this afternoon and erected and I must say it is very well made. Measurements were spot on did not have to alter anything SWR was 1-1. Once everything was checked I worked HZ1 which I could not hear at all on my Windom antenna. So all in all I am over the moon with this 3 element yagi. Can’t wait for conditions to get better I am going to have lots of fun with this antenna. So mny tnx Steve – Best 73 Roger G0MWE”
