17el PMR446 446Mhz (420MHz - 452MHz) Yagi Rear Mount
A 17 element for 420MHz to 460MHz including PMR446 Yagi with rear mounting and N-type connector. this is a professional grade antenna.
G0KSC has become well-known for the design of low noise Yagi antennas and the PMR446 OP-DES is no exception. Providing a massive 13.5dBi gain (without ground gain) and huge beamwidth and direct 50Ohm feed (no matching) the PMR446 is hard to beat.
When any antenna is placed above ground, ground gain can result and this antenna is no exception with 19.4dBi at 8m above ground!
NOTE: With All our HF antennas we can custom design your element taper and element size requirements in order to cater for all weather and installation requirements

Our antennas are constructed with the best quality materials in order the best mechanical construction can be achieved, not the cheapest and most profitable! Even a digital caliper is used (with an accuracy of .01mm where needed) to measure the elements during production to ensure they are within 0.2mm of what they should be, ensuring they work as well as our software model predicts.
Note: 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 found here
