The SpectrumForce Yagi receive-only antenna is intended for use on UHF (400-520 MHz.) and the 700/800/900 MHz. scanner bands. With five forward elements and a rear corner reflector it provides superior directionality combined with great affordability.

This is an inexpensive way to reduce simulcast interference on digital trunking systems, just point the antenna at a single tower site in a simulcast system to reduce the interference from other sites.

It can also be used to increase the range to a particular monitoring target or, combined with a rotator, used to help find the location of a transmitter.

One of our ScannerMaster experts successfully used this antenna on a “Fox Hunt”. A Fox Hunt is a radio direction finding exercise where participants search out a transmitter using directional antennas and other devices. In this case he mounted the antenna on a wooden closet rod/dowel and connected it to a scanner. The signal strength indicator on the scanner was used to determine the direction the signal was coming from, depending on the direction the antenna was pointed.

Once the participant got close to the target attenuators were used to reduce the signal strength to the scanner and provide a more precise bearing to the target. This little antenna helped our guy be the only participant to find the Fox!

The SpectrumForce Yagi antenna is easy to assemble, requiring no tools. It comes complete with a matching transformer with an “F” connector allowing use of low-cost RG6 or RG59 type coax. It works best from 400 to 950 MHz. It has amazing gain across two bands for such a low-cost antenna.

Reviewer: Johnnydollar2 from Chicago-land IL  
I already have a great 800mhz Yagi from Scannermaster. But I like the 400-520Mhz too so took a chance on this. YOU get what you pay for applies here. The $139.00 Yagi blows this thing away on 800mhz. I'll keep this as I switch to hear Chicago IL Digital Fire and Ohare Trunked systems on 400-500mhz ranges. Has good gain and range in those frequencies.  I Can't recommend this for simulcast problems. But I must say I'm in an apartment on the 2nd floor. Not mounted outside or in an attic so that might help you. I wish you better luck than me on 800mhz that way.  Now back to the expensive Yagi and perfect Simulcast signals. ;0)
