Hello from Richard G6HKS
... Some of you may know me, I am a keen all mode VHF and upwards DXer but like many have a less than perfect radio location – this has obliged me to optimise my station to the best of my ability – to this end I became a fan of Dereks PowAbeam designs which never cease to amaze me – My goal is simply to make it as easy as possible for Radio Amateurs to construct their PowAbeam – whether it be for a local rag chew or some serious DX’ing.
So whats the PowAbeam USP? – we have four unique selling points...
I currently use the ultra low noise CQM10UZ2 FLOWA which offers 10.8 dBd on a 3.5 metre boom and an impressive 25 db front to back and stunning pattern (just take a look) – using a pair produces a potent ‘small’ array with an incredibly tight turning radius
For EME I use Dereks 4 x 2M7N50 (original design) which frankly provide more performance per metre than any other design (at the sacrifice of narrow bandwidth and some wet weather sensitivity) – for example the 7 ele N50 provides 11.2 dBD on a 3 metre boom !!!
Check the BUILD page for notes and tips on construction , on the PRICES page
we offer various material kits so you can homebrew you own PowAbeam at low cost.
I am also very happy to cost up any bespoke order just let me know what you are after.
STOP PRESS: From November 1st 2012 we ‘GO LARGE’ due to popular request and can offer material kits for our largest 144 and 432 designs – we are talking up to 15 metre long boomers !! – utilising specialised mast brackets with guy pylon array, precision turned boom joiners and must have round boom sections (up to 2.5 metre sections) – bracing courtesy of 3mm UV protected Kevlar with 900kg breaking strain and less than 1% stretch. All the larger yagis with round section are pre drilled for the parasitic elements / ParAclips – leaving the more standard construction for you to complete (unless of course you opt for us to complete – check out the prices page we think you will like it
Making a PowAbeam is straighforward (no tuning - no baluns – just make it and go) you need some basic construction skills and should view this as a learning project with a high performance yagi as the end result – you will also see a number of articles / construction notes on the PowAbeam site to help you.
Optional service I am happy to make up the driven element and accurately cut / drill parts for plug and play just ask for this service and allow two weeks please.
Finally its good to know that our designs are being adopted by so many of you and behind many long DX QSO’s there is often a PowAbeam at work
I look forward to hearing from you...
PS: you will see some price reductions – most recent Ally purchases are lower so i’m passing this on as an early Christmas present - enjoy
