  • 5 element heavy duty Yagi Antenna for 2 meters. Boom length from reflector to last director is 70 inches. Has about an 8 extension at the reflector end for end mount. The boom is 1 3/10 inches in diameter & all elements are 3/4 inches. The attachments of the elements to the boom are castings with stainless u bolts. This is a relatively new antenna. The antenna would be great for snow & ice locations. Asking $70.00. I looked in DX Engineering & similar antennas were going for $149 to $199 BUT they are now heavy duty. P/U in Eugene, Oregon or willing to drive up 50 miles for delivery. If shipping is required will need to talk to you about it.
