DXE 12-6 HF & 6m Yagi
PRODUCTION READY - Email
The InnovAntennas DXE 12-6 is a 12 element multi-band HF & 6m Yagi covering 20m/17m/15m/12m/10m/6m bands with a single feed point with a 5.3m boom.
The DXE12-6 @ WB5AW
"Thanks for all the help Justin. It's in the air, although still at about 23 feet, and everything is working fine. I'll post on the review page that even an old 72 man can assemble it and get it in the air completely by himself!." James WB5AW.
The XR with a bigger punch!
The DXE 12-6 has been given and extra dedicated element for 12m and another 1.8m of boom over its smaller brother the XR6. the DXE 1206 covers the HF bands of 20/17/15/12/10 and 6m to match today's HF rigs camabilities and give excellent performance on all bands. In addition, the DXE 1206 provides wider, flatter bandwidth along with higher perfomance too and is built rugged enough to see off harsh weather environments.
Unlimited Power Handling
The DXE 12-6 has no matching devices, no traps, no coils, no hairpins and so has nothing to lose valueable power and thus has class-leading radiating efficiency. This means the only power limitation you have is how much power your coax cable can handle and more of your input Watts are correctly radiated from the antenna.
The Ideal partner for SDR Radios
The DXE 12-6 is an ideal partner for today's top SDR radios. There is no limitation in how many bands you can monitor or use at once. This means with products such as the Flex 6700, all 6 bands can be monitored at the same time WITHOUT COMPROMISE.
Multi-band, Performance-Busting Design
The more bands there are added to a multi-band Yagi, the more interlaced elements there are and in turn, performance per band drops with each no band added. The Unique design of the DXE 12-6 means no more than 3 band are interlaced on any part of the boom.
We have modified the construction of the DXE 12-6 to provide a more rigid look with faster taper to ensure fatigue due to vortex shedding (constant wind flow causing vibration) are not an issue. 20m element start at 35mm diameter and boom is 50mm diameter throughout.
Excellent All-Weather handling and reliability
With no moving parts and being modelled for wide bandwidth per band, the XR6 MkII is very forgiving in all weathers allowing you to enjoy your hobby whatever the location or time of year.
Icom North America and Kenwood UK changed their HF antennas to InnovAntennas HF multibanders to ensure reliability and remove the need for maintenance. If you don't want to be climbing the tower each year to fix stuff, the DXE 12-6 is for you too.
The Right Materials for the Job
The DXE 12-6 standing on it's own in terms of quality. Built using the latest CNC technology, all components are at the top of their field too. Our insulators are UV protected and handle -170 to +240 degrees C, our hardware is Marine Grade Stainless Steel and our aluminium aerospace grade T6 6066/6082.
