Product Code – 12M6TORHEAVY

A 6 element Yagi Antenna for the 12m 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. Large antennas such as this model also come complete with an additional ‘T-Bar’ horizontal strut/support. This support is used to reduce boom sag and anchors the boom in four (4) locations, 2 at the front and 2 at the rear. By using four support points (rather than two) – also reduces the sideways movement of the boom. For our guying line we use ‘Mastrant-P’ 4mm synthetic guy line which is rated at 400 kgs. To compliment the set-up, S3i 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel Eyebolts, Turnbuckles and Hardware finish the project. The antenna is supplied with all hardware except boom to mast mount (see below).
