A SHORT STUDY OF STACKED YAGI-UDA ANTENNAS
© Jay Terleski, WX0B
SUMMARY - EXAMPLE OF 40M STACK
Shorty 40 stacks are VERY effective in gain and pattern
Shorty 40 stacks equals or betters a single 3 element full size 40m beam
Shorty 40 stacks have better pattern than a 3 ele FS beam
More flexibility, beam in two directions, more angles
Much easier to maintain
A full size 40 stack RULES but a shorty 40 stack is not bad!
OTHER BENEFITS OF STACKING
Snow, Rain, wind, ionization static can be eliminated or reduced by taking the top antenna out of use in a stack.
