The 6M8GJ Yagi is the culmination of many years & countless versions of the “40’ Trip Yagi”. Inspired by W7GJ who, for years has tirelessly promoted 6M EME & DXpedition activity, the product bears his amateur call suffix “GJ”. Computer optimized for the exact conditions we find in most DXpedition locations, a height of 20’ to 30’, it turns out to be perfect for use at any height and in 2X or 4X array stacks. Is it built strong enough for home use? Yes in spades! Boom center sections are 2-1/2” dia. & the rest of the sections all telescope in 1/2” or 1/4” increments. The entire boom breaks down to a 2-1/2” X 5” X 43” bundle (just 1.09M long). It will survive horrible DXpedition conditions (100 MPH). Rugged 1/2” X 40” element center sections and 3/8” dia. tips mounted on machined, “slip on” element to boom clamps guarantees this antenna will stay up for years to come. It is easy to assemble & breakdown and we will give you tips how to eliminate any field measurements on DXpeditions. Lastly, in the worst case scenario if you get to a location where it is impossible to put up the full 6M8GJ, we will give you a second set of dimensions allowing you to still get on the air with a hi performance short yagi still capable of EME and top terrestrial performance! Optional items include: Nylon carry bag & portable 20+foot mast that telescopes as well and fits in the same carry bag with the antenna! The mast comes with Dacron guys, slip ring & guy anchors. Everything fits into the nylon carry bag and this package can be mailed or UPS’d almost anywhere in the world.
