FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • High Gain, Low Sidelobes: 15 elements on a 28-foot (4.03 wavelength) boom, with superior gain, low sidelobes, and high front-to-back ratio.
  • Weather Resistant: An encapsulated feedpoint and a weatherproof, low-loss type-N connector for use in all types of climates.
  • Wide Frequency Range: The usable frequency range of 144-146 MHz is perfect for 144 MHz EME & terrestrial DX, and 144-146 MHz satellite communications.
  • Stackable: Can be easily stacked for increased performance.

ELECTRICAL DESIGN

The VB-215DX design is based upon the DL6WU log-tapered design information. Performance was verified by testing on Hy-Gain's antenna range and by computer modeling with the NEC-2 and Yagi Optimizer© computer codes. The antenna's performance characteristics were optimized for the 144-144.5 MHz frequency range. This electrical design also permits the addition of more director elements for additional gain, with little or no retuning.

MECHANICAL DESIGN

A 6-section boom can be easily disassembled and reassembled for portable operations. A sturdy tubular boom support is included to reduce boom droop and to add structural strength for severe icing conditions.

Most hardware is stainless-steel including the element retaining rings (push nuts). All insulators are UV protected. The coaxial balun assembly is made from high quality RG-303/u and RG-142 B/u PTFE dielectric and FEP jacketed coaxial cable

The addition of 2 or 3 more directors will not adversely affect the balance or structural integrity of the antenna.
