3 element 28MHz LFA2 Yagi (3.1m)
A 3 element 28.0-28.6MHz LFA2 (bent parasitic element) Yagi - Second Generation LFA Yagi !
The G0KSC LFA Yagi represents 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 while at the same time maximising all round performance. Hard to beat with a direct 50 Ohm feedpoint and no matching losses and suppression of unwanted noise !! More information on the LFA Yagi can be found here.
This 3 element LFA is an excellent option if you do not have space, especially stacked !! 2 at just 7m spacing provides 16.01dBi (when placed 10m 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
The 3el 28MHz LFA @ G1OVK
The 28MHz 3 ele LFA is up and running and is yet another fantastic aerial, thanks.
The QRM from my own house is down by 2 S-points, and the horrible noise from the solar panels in the next street, now only affects me when I point straight at them, which is to be expected.
I am hearing three times as many of the 10m beacons than I've ever heard before and can now hear weak SSB signals which used to be covered by QRM.
