Technical description 88-DES-18

The 18 Element Yagi for VHF broadcasting (WFM, 88-108 MHz) is a development for radio listeners and BC-DXers with highest demands. Instead of optimising an antenna experimentally as in the past, this Yagi was carefully calculated and tested by G0KSC and then optimised in practice. The result is an almost constant gain over the entire width of the broadcast band - 20 Mhz after all. No matter where the distant station is transmitting in the band - the 18-element OP-DES Yagi hears it. The boom is 7.33m long, the gain is about 13.1 dBi, the front-to-back ratio is between 29 and 44 dB.

Application description 88-DES-18

This long yagi is aimed at radio listeners with very high demands, either in terms of reception quality or distance. And the best thing is that the gain is almost constant over the entire bandwidth of 20 MHz (88-108 MHz). This is important for comparative observations - no matter where the station is transmitting, the gain is always there.
