The 80M3C Yagi is a computer refined and improved performer, both mechanically and electrically. A low loss hairpin match provides perfect 1:1 match capability. Element halves start with 3" O.D. 1/8" wall tubing and taper through 2" sleeved, 1-3/4", 1-1/2", 1-1/4", 1", 3/4", 1/2" tips. Our elements are shortened using our NEW covered Loading Coil Assembly. A solid 2" O.D. Fiberglass rod, sleeved to fit inside the 3" elements, serves as the center insulator for each element. The center boom section is 4-1/2" O.D. x 20' with nearly 1/4" wall thickness. The two outer boom sections are 4" O.D. x 1/8" wall.
The NEW coil loaded element is supported using Phillistrand, non-metallic guy wire to reduce element droop. The NEW, heavy duty 1:1, 5kW balun, housed inside the Phone/CW switch enclosure, provides plenty of power handling margin. The standard Phone/CW band switching relays and high "Q" (over 600) coils are housed in a fiberglass housing. The whole assembly is now field serviceable and small frequency adjustments can be made in the CW part of the band. On the air, you'll find little or no competition for the 80M3C. Upgrade parts are available for older 80M3 linear loaded versions.
