Beams, directional Antennas
The top class of short wave antennas are still the beams, i.e. directional antennas for one or more amateur radio bands.
They require a small tubular mast on the roof of the house or a larger mast in the garden, the height above ground plays an important role in the radiation of these antennas. A sufficient height above ground provides a flat radiation angle.
Rotatable antennas have the advantage of either rotating the antenna in the desired direction with maximum gain or using the zeroes of the directional pattern to mask interference. This effect is also achieved by small mini-beams, which fit comfortably on a terraced house.
Multiband beams usually use traps to achieve a good SWR match.
Monoband beams offer uncompromising performance in larger spaces.
Antennas with motorized adjustable elements (Ultrabeam) offer the performance of a monoband antenna over a very wide frequency range, even outside the amateur radio bands.
WiMo manufactures a range of beam antennas in-house, for example the ZX-Yagi monoband antennas with excellent price/performance ratio, the versatile EAntenna Beams or the Ultrabeam antennas with motorized adjustable element lengths.
Additionally, WiMo offers various well-known brand beams such as Cushcraft, Mosley, etc. And above all, WiMo offers advice and help in choosing the right beam antenna!
