3-element 3-band Yagi (10, 15, 20m)
The HamSphere 3-element 3-band Yagi is one the antennas in our series of "Classical HF Antennas".
This is perhaps one of the most popular tri-band (20-15-10m) rotatable antenna configurations used
the world over by HF ham operators since decades.
One may find such an antenna available from almost every manufacturer in the world.
It is a very nice real-world antenna with good performance and relatively smaller size.
It offers a robust construction and is possible to install where space is at a premium.
The turning radius of a multi-band trap Yagi is far lower than equivalent monoband antennas.
Shortening of element lengths is achieved on account of the presence of traps.
HS4 3-el 3-band Yagi features aprroximately 10.5-11 dBi gain on 20m and 10m bands with a
slightly lower gain on the 15m band. This type of power gain distribution is typical for a Triband Trap Yagi.
The radiation patterns are broad and clean at low elevation angles which result in
excellent azimuth view in excess of +/-45 degrees.
It offers a good coverage for both mid-range as well as long-range DX work.
