Basics
 
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.

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.

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!

Yagi Antenna June 12, 2018
Reviewer: Ed Delaney from Saint Louis, MO United States  
I bought this to help with reception of the city FD. So far it is taking some fine tuning as to where to point it but it has helped some with the reception. A very good antenna.

Directional Antenna February 27, 2018
Reviewer: Robert F Osterland from Parma , OH United States  
The antenna works fine on my Whistler radios, however the reason I purchased it was to improve reception on my Uniden for the MARCS IP channels.  For some unknown reason this BCD 996P2 works in only one sweet spot in my house and it does not matter what antenna I use.  I sure cannot blame the yagi.  I do live amongst numerous TV transmission towers.

Great solution for simulcast distortion problems December 8, 2017
Reviewer: patrick from cleveland, OH United States  
For the money you cant beat this antenna.  Helped solve my simulcast distortion issues.  Using a BCD996T I get great reception even on VHF from 15 to 20 miles away.  I tinkered with it for a while by pointing it in different directions to get the best results before I mounted it in my attic. I would highly recommend this antenna.

You get what you pay for December 22, 2016
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. UPDATE: 12/22/2016
I moved the black transformer with the arrow to the BACK of the antenna where you can screw it on instead of that clamp. 800mhz came in much better in that position instead of the in the middle of the antenna. Just unscrew the wing-nut and change the position if you have simulcast issues in 800mhz.
