A 5 element wideband 50-51.35MHz OP-DES (Opposing Phase Driven Element System) Yagi -NEW ! Second Generation OP-DES Yagi !
UPDATED 2018 version - Very HD
OP-DES is the newest in patent technology produced by InnovAntennas and
is specifically designed for maximum performance, wide-band
applications. Read more about theOP-DES Yagi Here. InnovAntennas use the latest inElectromagnetic Design Technologyto ensure the very best results and the OP-DES Yagi is proof of that!
antenna has a flat SWR curve covering 50-51.350MHz at 1.1:1 SWR. The
super-compact 5el is a tiny antenna with a huge punch, Take a look!
Gain:9.16dBi @ 50.150MHz
F/B:35.43dB @ 50.150MHz
Gain at 10m above Ground:14.7dBi
SWR:Below 1.1:1 from 50.000MHz to 51.350MHz
Stacking Distance:3.5-4.3m ( 3.8m recommended)
2 Stacked Gain @ 3.8m spacing:12.00dBi
2 Stacked F/B:34.74dB
2 Stacked Gain @ 3.8m Spacing 10m above ground:17.38dBi
Other options available if higher wind loading/survival is required.
This antenna is made16mm centre elements and13mm outer elements with the OP-DES end sections10mm.
The antenna has fully insulated elements which will ensure continuous,
high performance for many years to come. Boom to mast brackets are
included with all antennas which will support2 inch (50mm)masts. Boom is 35mm square aluminum with a 2mm thick wall.

antennas are constructed with the best quality materials in order that
the best mechanical construction can be achieved, not the cheapest and
most profitable! Even a digital caliper is used (with an accuracy of
.01mm) to measure the elements during production to ensure they are
within 0.2mm of what they should be, this ensures they work as well as
our software model predicts.
Much development time has gone into our antennas, not just on basic
electromagnetic design, we are able to model the effect of insulators,
booms and other objects to ensure the make up of our antennas have least
effect on performance and pattern degradation. More information can be
