Another awesome yagi antenna from Antennas-Amplifiers! This time a dual band 2m/70cm yagi antenna which has only one feedpoint connector.

It's always been a goal of mine to work the USA on the 6 meter band. With Solar Cycle 25 on the rise, chances are becoming more and more frequent. A yagi is essential to working the long haul DX on 6!

I've not had the room for a full size HF antenna such as a dipole, or even a G5RV. So I got myself a DX Commander All Band Vertical from Callum - the DX Commander and WOW!
This antenna is so simple and allows me to operate on EVERY HF band using only a small footprint in my yard. Verticals can traditionally be known as noisy antennas too, so I show HF noise levels at my new QTH.
Antennas-Amplifiers make high quality HF/VHF/UHF high power capability yagi's as well as other ham radio accessories such as band pass filters, low noise amplifiers, power splitters and more!
Today I review the replacement antenna for my remote site, the PA144-432-19-3-2CAP antenna which is a dualband 2m/70cm yagi on a single boom with two separate connectors. How well are these antennas built and what kind of performance can you expect?

The DX Commander is an All Band Vertical HF Antenna that covers 9 bands from 80m through to 6m. It is an economical and efficient way of getting on every HF band easily with a nice compact vertical antenna.
The antenna is basically a fan dipole, but rather than horizontal, it is vertical quarter wave elements in parallel on a common driven element base with short ground radials. Of particular interest in this design is the fold over on the 40m element, which acts as a 5/8th on 15m.
The antenna is a breeze to put together and in this video I show my build and review from Callum M0MCX - the DX Commander.
