Lowband Antenna Setup! 

Force 12 Magnum 160VX2160 Meter Vertical - Force 12 160 VX2

I chose the Magnum 160 VX2 vertical from Force 12 for my 160 operation. I reviewed several commercial verticals and considered building an inverted L from my place. I took the advice of friends and bought a great vertical. I liked the mil-spec quality of the Force 12 verticals. They are made to withstand long winters and less than ideal conditions. 


 I use a
Force 12 Magnum 240 N two element yagi for 40meters.  It is 85% full size and has <2:1 SWR from 7.000 Mhz through 7300 Mhz. I consistently receive 5-9 plus plus signal reports from DX stations.Several have asked me what antenna I am using.


Many 40 meter yagis interact with 15 meter yagis. This onedoes not  It can be stacked within 5 feet of another yagi.


  • It is an easy antenna to assemble and I had Tom Schiller (N6BT) install a special switch to make it more broad-banded across all of 40meters.  Tom can build you this antenna anytime you want.
