crossyagi 10 elements gain...? - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Anyone could tell me ? What the International standard gain for 10 elements VHF crossyagi ?

Thanks.

TonyW.

I also forgot to add that : what is the international standard for the HPBW (half power beamwidth) ?

Gain= >12 dBi
Frint to Back ratio => 15 dB
CPD = 18 dB
VSWR <1.5

Mounting easy interchangeable from V to H and vice versa

Hello Tony:

There is no "Standard Gain" for a 10 element Yagi.
The gain of a Yagi depends on it's impedance, design bandwidth,
and construction.

If the antenna is well built and well designed, the gain
will be about 12 dBd.

Build as a cross Yagi, and a 90 deg phase harnass, then
the antenna will have about 12 dBdc or 12 dB Circular Polarized gain.

Mounting a Cross Yagi is also difficult.
A metal cross boom can detune the Yagi Elements.

It is best if the antenna is end mounted.
But with VHF Cross Yagi's you can use a metal mast if
the antenna is mounted X fashion, and the mounting boom
is vertical or horizontal.

Good luck Kent WA5VJB@FLASH.NET

Half Power Beamwidth will be about 45 degrees.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
