Comet CA-52HB4 Wide Band 6 Meter Beam Antennas offer full band coverage in a compact and lightweight Yagi that is designed to be mounted horizontally and is optimized for 50 to 52 MHz weak-signal SSB, CW, and digital mode operations.
CA-52HB4 beams produce a gain of 6.3 dBi (4.2 dBd) with a very low SWR, under 1.5:1 across the 50-53.5 MHz range, achieved with a special dual-driven element system that allows operation without an antenna tuner. Ruggedly constructed with aluminum elements and boom, and stainless steel hardware, these antennas have a wind survival rating of 75 MPH. , built to be mounted horizontally only, not vertically.
CA-52HB4 beams handle 400 watts PEP SSB and 200 watts CW, but they are wide-banded so they can be used up the band in the FM mode, for flexible base or portable operations.
