The RB-406 has surprisingly good DX performance even when it is operated as low as 1 wavelength above ground. This lightweight 4 element wide-spaced monoband beam is easily supported by a light-duty tower or TV push-up pole, and turned with a light-duty rotor. When mounted at 3 to 5 wavelengths or higher it’s a force to be reckoned with. A very competitive contest beam, it’s also perfect for field day and DXpeditions.
Don’t let its small size fool you. It will compete with yagis with up to twice the boom length, and you’ll hear the weak ones better due to its low noise characteristics. Its supergain performance is backed by a money-back guarantee.
