This antenna is moved to the second tower an is one of the two 6el yagis in the 10m stack
The 6 element 10 m yagi is made of a two CueDee 10 m Yagis and a driver element from Finnish Antenna Ltd (same as for the 15 and 20 m antennas). The boom is extended to 10.1 m (32.8 ft). There is no matching harness the design gives 50 ohms without any matching. There will be a current balun of course. As the 10m band is very wide the optimization is much more tricky as it has to be optimized for Gain, F/B and bandwidth. Mike SJ2W has made a nice design.
|Boom legth (diam 50/60 mm/ 2/2.5″)||10.1 m (32.8 ft)|
|Longest Element||5.32 m (17.4 ft)|
SWR measured with the antenna 7m over the ground, looks promissing.
