G4CQM's Amateur (Ham) Radio VHF/UHF Yagi Antenna Designs
12th Sept 2016... You've arrived at the index page to my websites... Many thanks to all of you who decided to build and use my 50-Ohm direct feed yagi antenna designs! My radio station website is here at www.g4cqm.uk
Six years of research has revealed that yagi designs with a very low average Q-factor deliver the best overall performance, and stability in all weather. To achieve this I use a range of Software to ensure accuracy, including K6STI's unique AO Professional. As a result many of my designs have the cleanest patterns as seen in TANT. There is no need for a conventional Balun either, making Driven Element construction very easy indeed!
Considering building a Dual Band 6/4M (50/70MHz) single feed yagi design? Then my in depth article spills the beans!
In 2013 I handed over to Richard Mason G6HKS and also Roger Banks GW4WND of the DXShop ownership and production of PowAbeam Antennas. Please remember it's Richard for kits & parts and Roger for ready made yagis!

|An important lesson from VK4MJF: When using Stauff type clamps on 144MHz use additional spacing, raising elements sufficiently high above the boom to avoid the need for correction. Thus ensuring that your yagi is tuned correctly...||An important lesson from VK4MJF: When using Stauff type clamps on 432MHz use additional spacing, raising elements sufficiently high above the boom to avoid the need for correction.
