THIS PRODUCT HAS BEEN REPLACED BY THE 40M4CDD.
ORDER THIS ONLY IF YOU ARE STACKING WITH AN EXISTING 40M4LLDD.
The recently upgraded, computer optimized, linear loaded, dual driven 40M4LLDD gets the bandwidth and maintains performance across the band like no other 40 meter Yagi. This was a huge challenge requiring the latest techniques in computer optimization. Gain, Front to Back and VSWR are maintained nearly flat across the whole band! In addition, it is now better mechanically and easier to assemble. Only the tips of each element are different as all the linear loading settings are the same for each element.The shorting bars are now 2 piece, clamp type making solid long lasting connections. For foreign amateurs, two tuning options are available; FULL BAND and LOW END ACCENTUATED, but still broadband. The resulting design is head and shoulders above the competition in strength, durability and performance. This antenna has been designed to meet your crossband SSB contesting needs and give you years of enjoyment on the 40 meter band regardless of future band plan changes.
Mechanically, the elements are butt sleeved to withstand continuous winds of 100 mph or the constant battering of high winds . This antenna WILL frustrate Mother Nature! The Driven elements are split in the center and insulated with a solid 1-1/4” fiberglass rod. The parasitic element also have solid 1-1/4” center aluminum center section. The 3 kW continuous, 5 kW peak, 1:1 balun completes the package. All hardware is stainless or galvanized except the U-bolts. Options include parts to add 4 elements for 17 or 20 meters.
