The DX performance of the RB-506 is awesome even when it is operated as low as 1 wavelength above ground. This 5 element wide spaced mono-band beam is easily supported by a medium-duty tower, and turned with a medium-duty rotor. When mounted at 60 to 75 ft. or higher it is the ultimate contest beam… truly a force to be reckoned with. It’s also excellent for field day and DXpeditions.
This antenna is a true “pileup buster”. 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.
