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

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

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

Thanks.

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 tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
