Antenna for sale - May 14, 2020


X7 Big Thunder Tribander Yagi antenna

The X7 Triband Yagi is geared to set new standards in both radiating performance and mechanical reliability. The product development team has employed the latest computer modeling technology to achieve a superior electrical design as well as elegant new mechanical hardware and assembly techniques. Each mechanical component was designed to 100+ MPH wind survival with a 1.25 safety factor. Traps were eliminated from the high current driven elements and reflectors using the new 4L Log Cell design, which yields virtual monoband performance and maximum power handling capability. Traps are employed only in the lower current directors for increased gain and sharper pattern. The result is a truly high performance antenna which will easily handle the legal limit.

  • New High Efficiency Computer Optimized Design for Maximum Gain and Ultra Clean Radiating Pattern
  • 100+ MPH Construction for Best Reliability and Long Life
  • NEW 4L Log Cell Driven Elements for better VSWR Bandwidth
  • Trapless Driven Elements and Reflectors for Reliable Power Handling

40 meter add on kit X-740 available.
For Sale- Just removed from my tower.
This antenna has the 40 meter X-740 ad-on element, $400 additional as I remember.
I believe I paid around $1400 asking $700. Was partially dis-assembled for ease of transporting but will be a quick re-assembly. I live 15 miles west of Denton one mile north of highway 380.
This was a great antenna, however I'm replacing it with a Stepir DB42 for better utilization of the MARS/CAP frequencies.
