I have a new MEGA Antenna for 6 Meters! 50 MHz Ham Radio

24 January, 2022 - Reading time: ~1 minute

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!

The BEST Multiband HF Antenna for Limited Spaces!

25 October, 2021 - Reading time: ~1 minute

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.


2m/70cm Dualband Yagi Review | Antennas-Amplifiers

4 June, 2021 - Reading time: ~1 minute

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?

DX Commander All Band Vertical HF Antenna Build & Review

8 January, 2021 - Reading time: ~1 minute

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.
