A Super Low Noise Yagi for serious DX and EME applications
The G0KSC LFA-LN series of Yagis for 432MHz have been specifically designed maximum suppression of the rearward 'bubble' when a singular or multi-antenna array are in use. The design allows for forward lobes to appear but keeps them close to the main lobe. This 'outlet' for the frontal lobes helps reduce the rear suppression when stacking and hence the much tighter rear pattern with almost every direction (other than the main lobe) being down 30dB.
The G0KSC LFA-LN LFA Yagis for 70cms are streets apart (in terms of performance) from anything else in its class and more and more hams will become accustomed to the stunning performance they deliver, as time goes by.

The LFA is especially effective for EME where very low noise antennas are required and many hours development have been spent ensuring the highest levels of performance have been achieved in an antenna that is not affected by wet weather conditions. As a single, double and 4 stack (or more) system, the LFA Yagi is the one to have.
Our antennas are constructed with the best quality materials in order the best mechanical construction can be achieved, not the cheapest and most profitable! Even a digital caliper is used (with an accuracy of .01mm) to measure the elements during production to ensure they are within 0.1mm of what they should be, this is extremely important on 432MHz and measurements must be as accurate as possible if performance and temperature are to be maintained.
If you are looking for the best of the best from both a performance and mechanical construction perspective then look no further, you have come to the right place!

This antenna has all parasitic elements made from 1/4 inch aluminum rod. The LFA loop is constructed from 4 pieces of aluminum tube. The sections in-line with the parasitic elements are 1/2 inch while the end sections of the loop are 3/8 inch allowing the user to adjust the loop for best SWR. All elements are fully insulated from the boom, held in place by high quality UV resistant RF neutral insulators which in-turn are held to the boom via stainless steel fixings and fittings.
The boom on this antenna is 1.5 inch square (38.1mm)
If you want an antenna to last and perform in all weathers without SWR or bandwidth shifting, this is it.
