VHF/UHF Log-Periodic Antenna
Antenna, LPDA Type, VHF/UHF, 21 Elements, 50-1300 MHz, 500 W, 50 ohms, 6.66 ft. Boom Length, Type N, Female
Create CLP-5130-1N VHF/UHF Log-Periodic Antennas are high-gain, wideband directional beam antennas. Designed for horizontal polarization, they may also be mounted vertically with user-supplied hardware. These antennas are capable of transmitting on all amateur bands from 6-meters through 23-centimeters at 500 watts power! Forward gain for these antennas from 50 to 1,300 MHz is 10 to 12 dBi, depending on the frequency. They present an SWR of less than 2.0:1 across their entire range of operation. They are also suitable for use in scanner listening, VHF/UHF television, FM broadcast, aviation, government communications, and business radio. To fully utilize the entire bandwidth of these antennas requires a high-quality feedline, like DXE-400MAX.
These log-periodics use a specially shaped aluminum boom that allows for movement of the phasing line. Additionally, distortions in the vertical and horizontal planes have been minimized and adjustment of the element alignment is unnecessary. This results in a more uniform radiation pattern when compared to similar antennas. These antennas are also very easy to assemble when compared to other log-periodic designs. Quality is seen everywhere–even the boom-to-mast bracket is made of rugged magnesium alloy. A Type N connector is employed for maximum signal transfer.
If you don’t have the space or resources to put up several VHF and UHF antennas, Create CLP-5130-1N VHF/UHF Log Periodic Antennas are truly your one-antenna solution to VHF/UHF operation!
