The Yagi 18E can be used as a diplexed second aerial (usually with an A group) to pick up MUX 7 – on CH 55 – off transmitters which would otherwise be A group. As an alternative, as can be seen from the gain graph (below), the Yagi18K is not far behind the 18E at CH55, and the 18K is held in stock
The version we stock has the best performance of all the Yagi18Es on the market, it has a “balun”, a cradle and a tilting clamp for poles up to 2in. Last, but by no means least, these Yagi18s are one of the sturdiest aerials around. In fact we sold one to a chap in Orkney and he reported it was still fine after a 110mph wind ! Another customer stated “this Yagi18 makes all other aerials look like cheap, tacky TOYS!” Many people replace Bacofoil aerials with these and are amazed at the difference in build quality, and you will be too…….
I’ve always liked them, they’re one of my favourites, I would say that, all things considered, the Yagi18s (and their little brother the Yagi10K) are probably the best aerials we sell.
The test performance and the dimensions and wind loading of the aerial can be found in the tables below.
