Re: Band II antenna

I'm guessing it will be an array of 16 when finished.

Yes 10. I missed counting one. Also looks like the whole array rotated both horizontally and azimuth.

Interesting image, Larry.  Aren’t there 10 yagis, 8 on top and 2 on the bottom?  And it appears the two on the bottom might be oriented with the elements in the vertical plane, as opposed to horizontal like the top yagis.

Nine rotatable is better!

You could try the Antennenland Korner 9.2, German company, I don't know if they ship outside Germany these days. I know they won't ship to the UK any longer thanks to Brexshit.

The 8 element innov is very good, it's worth waiting for. Send Justin a direct mail if you have problems.

As there are more experienced Band II DXers lurking can you recommend a Band II antenna? Max boom-length 5m and in stock somewhere in Europe. I ordered an Innovantennas OPT-DES which has not showed up 16 weeks later, so I cancelled the order. I have a crappy 3 ele up now. It was good enough for MUF tracking but would like something better for tropo.


Any recommendations?
