For years InnovAntennas co-owner Bill AA7XT pestered his InnovAntennas business partner Justin G0KSC to design an antenna that would cover 20 through 6 meters including the WARC bands on a single feedline. Justin repeatedly refused on the principle that such a design would involve too many compromises and that all the multiband antennas in the market were seriously flawed for this very reason. One day not too long ago while considering a 2014 upgrade of the venerable Force 12 C-3 inspiration struck, 17, 12 and 6 meters made the grade and a short boom six band Yagi was born that Justin is proud to put his name and considerable reputation behind.
This is a great replacement for the best selling but now retired XR-5 (do not confuse with the XR5-S and XR5-T, which are brand new) adding 6 meters and shortening the boom (and lowering the price).If you need an even smaller footprint, select the Reduced Size Capacitive Loaded 20m Elements option (XR6-C). The XR6-C shrinks the 20m elements from approximately 38 to 29 feet using a mechanically and electromagnetically superior capacitive loading system (superior to linear and inductive ‘coil’ loading techniques) and is otherwise identical to the XR6 with essentially no sacrifice in performance.
Remote Ham Radio recently installed a XR5-T to cover 17 and 12 meters from their W2/Monticello site (XR5-T also covers 20, 15 and 10 meters, of course!).
