    I have sold over 90 of these antennas since February of 2011 with 100% happy buyers!

    Receive frequency: 136mhz-174mhz
    Transmit frequency: 144mhz-147mhz

    Gain: 7.3 dBd
    Front-to-Back Ratio: >50 db

    • Extend the reach of your VHF radio signal significantly with this 3-element directional Yagi when compared to a stock rubber "duck" antenna.
    • Can be used with handheld radios or receivers and even mobile radios up to 50 watts in power.
    • Do you live in a condo or apartment where mounting an outdoor antenna is prohibited? This is your answer!
    • Have fun reaching those long distance contacts on your VHF or 2m HAM radio when camping, hiking or other recreational activities.
    • This antenna has shown great results when paired with many makes and models of dog/animal radio tracking systems that use frequencies between 136mhz and 174mhz such as the Garmin Astro 220 (adapter may be required to fit your specific model, and must be purchased separately).
    • Works great for locating hard to find radio frequency interference (RFI).
    This directional, light weight, portable hand-held Yagi antenna is designed for radio transmitter tracking and high-gain transmitting. This antenna is custom built using strong but light weight PVC pipe, steel hose clamps, RG-58 coaxial cable (including 4 turns of the cable mounted cleanly on the antenna to prevent stray RFI, also known as an RF choke), crimp-on BNC connector with heat shrink, 1" wide steel tape measure elements and hair-pin matching network for low SWR (less than 1.5:1 across the entire 144mhz-148mhz HAM band). Coax cable and hair-pin match are soldered directly to the driven elements for best conductivity. Antenna elements easily fold up for easy transportation and storage. This antenna is equipped with a BNC connector and can be used with any radio, receiver or scanner*. All this makes it the most well-built, inexpensive and efficient antenna available.

    *Adapters may be required for your specific device and must be purchased separately.

    Longest antenna element is 41 3/4"
    Length of antenna is approximately 30" when fully assembled

    My positive feedback speaks for itself! See what recent buyers have to say about their purchase!

    Your item will arrive partially assembled due to shipping size requirements, keeping shipping costs to a minimum. Antenna will require very simple assembly requiring no tools at all. Expect your new antenna to arrive within 5-10 business days (depending on demand), shipping via USPS Priority Mail. For international shipments, charges differ depending on your location.[SIZE=-0]

    Money back guarantee! If you are not satisfied with this antenna, mail it back to me within 30 days of purchase date and I will issue a refund for the selling price.
