YBN 50-9m Yagi with Straight Dipole
EME + SSB modest bandwidth version ... strictly G/T breeding with a straight dipole
This Yagi is a twin to the GTV 2-9m designed for those who yield to avoid producing and trimming a bent dipole. With rearranged driver cell this Yagi's performance is only a fraction away from the GTV version by means of losing just a marginal bit on the backlobes: F/B and F/R are down by approximately 1.5 dB compared to the GTV 2-9m.
This medium length Yagi is balanced between gain and Antenna Temperature. Design date of issue: 2019.02.25
