The new 6-4-20 is a serious performer with an 11.1m computer optimised tapered boom and 10 elements on both 50MHz and 70MHz with a single feed point.
The 6-4-20 provides impressive performance on both bands with 14.46dBi free space gain on 70MHz and 13.41dBi free space gain on 50MHz. Placed 12m above average conductive ground, gain increases on 70MHz to over 20dBi and on 50MHz to almost 19dBi.
In addition, the 6-4-20 has been optimised for FT8 frequencies as well as the traditional operational areas of the band so as can be seen from the plots, SWR is flat through both bands os no amplifiers will have issues.
The previous longest dualbander for these bands was the 8-8-8- which has an 8m boom with 8 elements on each band sells well. The new dualbander has been in operation at OH5LK and EA5GF this summer with excellent results.
Want a monster on your tower for both 50MHz and 70MHz? There is just one place to look.
