JK-402 Might End Up at KY6R

Stack of JK-402’s from the JK Antenna’s web site

I’m very seriously considering this antenna. I like the idea of having 2 elements with coils out mid element – that is what I had on the 40M section of my N6BT DXU-32 and so I know its a great design. The (used) Cushcraft XM-240 fell through – so I will purchase something new.

The three yagi’s that are in the running at this point are the JK-402, N6BT DXr-240 and the Optibeam OB2-40

The winner will be the vendor who responds in a way where I feel comfortable with their service level. All three of these antennas are pretty much the same design.

  1. My vote is for the JK-402. N6BT’s delivery is slow and after-market support is questionable. Optibeam is fabulous and support is very good, but you still have to deal with a European company and the attendant issues that arise doing so (think customs). JK is a well-established US company, and they have a great reputation.
