The 20M5LD (Light Duty) is brand new. It features the same on air performance as itfts very popular, heavy weight brother, the 20M5, but it is much lighter weight. We listened to our customers and have carefully reduced itfts weight significantly while reducing the wind survival rating by only 10 MPH. The 20M5LD has the same clean pattern and great gain across the band. We have also made it a inDirect Feedin yagi requiring no matching, only a 1:1 balun. It is easier and quicker to assemble, as well as easier to install. Stacking a pair will cost less and put less stress on your tower. Mechanically, a pair of machined 3/8in x 4in aluminum boom to element plates and saddles ground each parasitic element and keep elements aligned perfectly for years to come. Elemenets taper in 1/4in steps from 1 1/4in to the adjustable 1/2in tips. The re-designed 44 foot x 3in boom is a full 1/8in wall in the center section but the tips are half the weight at 1/16in wall. All critical hardware is stainless steel. The 20M5LD is available through our fine distributors, worldwide. For your 100 MPH + hilltoppers, we make a Survivor Series.
*We now offer 1:1 baluns in 3 power ranges; 2.5, 5 and 10 kW. Be sure to pick your favorite when purchasing the 20M5LD
