Description

The 2 Element Yagi has the highest value-to-performance of any of our antennas and is the antenna of choice for DX-peditions.

The SteppIR 2 element 20m-6m Yagi with 40/30 loop covers 8 ham bands (40m, 30m, 20m, 17m, 15m, 12m, 10m, 6m) and every frequency in between. This model takes our standard 20m-6m Yagi and replaces the 36 foot (10.98m) straight element with a 39 foot (11.89m) looped driven element.  Our patented folded loop elements allow for an element to be 40% shorter in overall length while giving up just 0.3dB of gain performance when compared to a full-length dipole.  Instead of a dipole length of 65 feet (19.8m), the length is 39 feet (11.89m). When the antenna is a dipole on 40m and 30m, the passive element is retracted so that there is zero potential for interaction between the 2 elements.  In addition, the longer-length driven element has minimal effect on the turning radius and adds just 2 square feet (0.19 sq m) to the wind load.  The 40/30 loop functions as a dipole continuously from 6.90 Mhz to 13.2 Mhz and as a 2 element Yagi from 13.3 Mhz-54 Mhz.
