Do you have access to an Antenna analyzer ?


Quoting Gary Smith <>:

I was considering making a 6M Yagi and
still would like to but realising my time
constraints with upcoming ankle/leg
surgery this fall, I'm better to buy a
turnkey antenna and put it together on the
roof and just be done with it. Until I
relocate to a better place to put up
antennas have a tower.

It was suggested to the me that the 5
element Cushcraft A505S is a good choice
but I see it has a 1KW limit and I want
something with a 1.5KW limit as I have a
1.5KW King Conversions amp. Has anyone any
experience in converting this antenna into
one that takes 1.5KW?

Another option is the five element M2
6M5XHP which works fine with 1.5KW, will
fit in the required location, but costs
twice as much as the Cushcraft.

Looking at the $ involved, the Cushcraft,
if it can be easily modded to handle the
power, is a much more lucrative option.
I'm pretty sure the M2 is a nicer antenna

Any Idears?
