The XR5-JK is a five band / Multiband Yagi that interlaces 10, 12, 15, 17 & 20 meters on a single boom. This antenna is based on the classic Force 12 design and optimized with a single transmission line feed system. This unique design places full size elements along the boom in the same plane and produces amazing 2 element monobander performance on all 5 bands. The optional 6-meter kit places 2-additional elements to make this antenna active on 6 meters - XR6-JK.
The XR5-JK is a direct 50-ohm feedpoint with the other band driven elements connected through a robust transmission line. It is manufactured the same way as our bigger Yagis with the same high quality materials and hardware.
