We recommend our Yagi10K for good to medium signal areas. The version we stock has the best performance of all the Yagi10 K groups (or Yagi 10 widebands) on the market, it has a “balun” and a tilting clamp for poles up to 2in. Last, but by no means least, these Yagi10s are one of the sturdiest aerials around. The Yagi10K is the little brother of the Yagi 18s and the latter are very well made, in fact we sold one to a chap in Orkney and he reported it was still fine after a 110mph wind and another customer stated “this Yagi18 makes all other aerials look like cheap, tacky TOYS!” If, relative to other aerials, the Yagi 18 is built like a tank, then the Yagi 10 must be built like a nuclear bunker, remember it has the same heavy duty components as the Yagi 18 but in a smaller aerial i.e. lower wind load. Many people replace Bacofoil aerials with these and are amazed at the difference in build quality, and you will be too.
“Hard wired” dipole which is preferable for weather proofing.
I would say that, all things considered, the Yagi10K (and its bigger brothers the Yagi18s) are probably the best aerials we sell.
Note that since the 700MHz clearance the Yagi10K is effectively a wideband, i.e. it’s suitable for any transmitter (in a good to medium signal area).
The test performance and the dimensions (plus the wind loading) of the aerial can be found in the tables below.
