A 10 element LPY for 36-56MHz (no longer in use)
This 10 element LPY was built to overcome a problem that occurs with most 6m Yagis when used as a "scanner antenna" while looking for propagation indicators below 47MHz. The radiation pattern of most 6m Yagis flips below 47Mhz showing more gain "off the back". It is not very convenient to rotate the 6m Yagi 180 degrees to look for propagation indicators, then back again to call stations on the 6m band. It is also easy to be confused about which direction an indicator is coming from.
