WiMo Yagis for 2m and 70cm
WiMo-Yagis DK7ZB design
No-Compromise Electrical and Mechanical Technology.
Our Yagi antennas are made by WiMo, "Made in Germany". This means:
- Immediately available ex works
- German and english documentation
- No worries about spare parts
- Support directly from the manufacturer
- Special versions possible

- Maximum possible gain at high bandwidth and good side lobe attenuation as well as good f/b ratio. These antennas offer the ultimate performance for the serious V/UHF ham operator for DX and all transmission modes. The basis for the antennas has been designed with the xxNEC computer simulation programs and have been verified by many real-life trials + tests.
Design optimized for current:
The inner electrical signature of the perfect yagi asks for homogenous current distribution from the active element to the tip of the antenna. Our yagis were optimized for an ideal current distribution profile. "Older" concepts display sudden current "jumps" between antenna elements which leads to reduced gain and bad side lobe attenuation and low f/b ratio.
Minimum number of elements
Other comparable types of yagis require 2-3 elements more and consequently introduce more losses. Keep in mind: Antenna gain mainly depends on the boom length of the antenna and not so much on the number of antenna elements!
The elements used consist of high conductive aluminum material with a diameter of 8 mm. This represents the best compromise of minimizing losses on one hand and resulting wind loads on the other hand. When using thin antenna elements additional losses are being introduced as well as the significant effect of the skin effect in V/UHF frequency range. Yagi designs of such specifications fall short of 0.5 dB in gain mainly caused by bad conductivity!
Well defined element mounting
The element mounting displays long-term stability and durability by the use of ultraviolet-resistant Polyamid clamps. The electrical specifications do not alter nor change within many years of use.
Would the mechanical construction introduce a direct fix of the antenna elements onto the boom by means of clamps it is very likely that corrosion alters the effective element dimensions (electrically) and consequently a slow process of antenna performance degradation would take place!

WiMo-Yagis use N-jacks (female), the balun is protected in the connector box!
The dipoles are true folded dipoles with a Teflon balun mounted in the center feed. This is a non-compromise solution avoiding the known problem of RF travelling along the outer surface of the coax's shield. Similar to the 2-m antennas the connector is an N-type. The center feed box is absolutely weather proof, sealed and additionally filled with Styrofoam. The Teflon balun is embedded into the center feed box. As seen with other antennas there are no balun slopes hanging out of the connection box and no need to affix the slope somehow to the antenna. Consequently, this design has no problems whatsoever with humidity leakages.
WiMo-Yagis use 8 mm diameter on elements (below)!
We utilize elements with a diameter of 8mm. This results in an extended bandwidth but same gain compared to thinner elements! The windload increases just a little bit which plays absolutely no role when using today's modern antenna rotors. Material of the elements: A highly conductive aluminum alloy we use to minimize the skin effect; DK7ZB has calculated (based on technical material from K6STI) that the losses due to the skin effect can add up to 0.8 dB for antenna elements made of stainless steel. Of course, the losses are even worse in the 70 cm band.
WiMo-Yagis use screw-on elements!
Fixed is fixed - we are not in favor of clamp-on connectors. The WIMO-Yagis feature elements which are fixed to the boom by means of stainless steel bolts and nuts. This guarantees low-resistance and un-hampered functionality for years to come. Each element is fixed to the boom by means of a 3 mm stainless steel bolt. We assure you we never "lost a boom" because of the additional screw holes in the boom!
WiMo-Yagis use stainless steel screws!
All nuts, bolts and washers are made of stainless steel with the exception of the mast clamp itself. This guarantees a long antenna life time. The antenna element mounts are made of Polyamide material which is highly resistant to the destructive effects of ultraviolet light. In case of the cross yagis the elements are fixed to the circular boom made of aluminum.
Crossed yagis without strut!
WiMo crossed yagis can be mounted diagonalyy or horizontally/vertically!
The antenna boom of the cross yagis is made of circular aluminum tubes (only exception is the 2 m 4-element antenna). The well designed and exceptionally manufactured mast clamp allows mounting of the antennas as well in a horizontal/vertical ('+'-Form) as in a diagonal ('X'-Form) shape. Because of the circular boom our cross yagis do not require an additional support strut; consequently the already perfect antenna diagram cannot be affected by the support strut...
Location of Mounting Clamp
WiMo-Yagis allow balanced mounting of the antenna!
All long yagis with twin boom (except WY-214) have a separate boom-connector for installation; such the mast clamp may be mounted independent from the boom-connection at the center of gravity (not on WY-214).
