The 12M4DX is a great performer for its size. It was designed for low wind area but rugged and lightweight and it will save you a bundle on shipping. IT’S UPSABLE! like all our “DX” series. The computer optimized design allows full band coverage with good gain and front to back. Performance is excellent on both the CW and phone. Mechanically, CNC machined aluminum (6061-T6) ring clamps ground the elements to the boom and make assembly a snap. A hairpin type match couples the 3 kW 1: balun to the feed line. The antenna is completely DC grounded. The 12M4DX is also great for stacking,providing 3 dB increased gain not to mention the lower angle of radiation. The 12M4DX is a perfect stacking partner for our other “DX series Yagis like the 20M4DX and 10M4DX. Put the 12M4DX to the test in the new cycle!
