Product Code – 11M3TORSUPERLITE

A 3 element Yagi Antenna for the 11m band from the Vortex ‘SuperLite’ range. Manufactured from lightweight but extremely strong construction grade 6082-T6 Aluminium stock, this antenna is an excellent solution for portable or field day activities. When originally modelled, the design when ‘Very Carefully Enhanced’ could peak its front to back at 82.5db. However, this was purely an experiment and we found that even slight changes in the dimensions by at little as 0.1mm could change the performance characteristics dramatically. In the ‘Real World’ these very close tolerances could not be achieved. The ‘Vortex’ design has been entered to give maximum performance for the least weight and physical size, with a useful high front to back ratio (around 35db at band center) and good pattern and forward gain. The antenna is supplied with all hardware except boom to mast mount (see below). The image shown is of a test antenna without the SO239 connector and hairpin match. Production models include both as standard.

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.
