Justin Johnson G0KSC of InnovAntennas Limited, part of IHSG announced today the launch of the third generation LFA Yagi, the LFA-3. A full range of the latest release of the low noise Yagi will be launched throughout 2017 with the first appearing on the InnovAntennas website (www.innovantennas.com ) prior to the 2016 year end.
The LFA become well-known in 2007 with G0KSC first presented the LFA Yagi within the pages of DUBUS magazine which boasted a direct 50Ohm feed point and closed loop driven element system which provides two of the attributes that help the LFA Yagi provide its unparalleled low-noise performance well suited to the needs of the city dwelling amateur radio enthusiast.
‘’The LFA-3 is the next step in the development of the LFA Yagi with even more gain and F/B per foot of boom than ever before’’ Justin shared at the press release. ‘’Some companies produce the very early LFA designs which appear on the www.g0ksc.co.uk website although quality and build interpretation have often fell short. For this reason, only companies where I have a direct input into the way these antennas are built will have the authorisation to construct and resale these third generation designs and right now that is limited to InnovAntennas (and IHSG member companies) with a limited number of models that will be available through Hy-Gain and Cushcraft early next year’’.
‘’To give an example of the level of performance now being achieved, a 4 element 50mHz LFA on a 3.9m long boom delivers 10.74dBi (8.6dBd) and over 23dB F/B while still providing stability in wet weather and an ultra-low noise pattern. It is often this combination of all of the above mentioned attributes that so many designers and users alike, fail to recognise as being important for the production and a successful Yagi that serves the needs of a modern day ham living in a noisy urban environment.’’
