7 element 70MHz LFA-WOS Yagi
High Gain 70MHz LFA Yagi optimised for urban environments and reduction of inband noise, including other stations!
The antenna is a scaled and re-optimised version of the 50MHz LFA WOS originally designed for G3WOS
The G0KSC LFA Yagi is a major step forward in the development of the Yagi Antenna; it provides a low-noise front-end for your radio so you hear more weak signals. If you suffer with noise or are in a city location, this is the antenna for you. This 7 element 70Mhz LFA provides stunning performance across the whole 4m band (69.900 - 70.500MHz). Hard to beat with a direct 50 Ohm feed-point and no matching losses!!
This is an excellent stacker requiring just 4.4m spacing. See details below.
