Tribander - Force 12 C-3S

While the team used verticals on all bands, we also brought along an efficient tribander so the team could understand the difficulties of installing it under field-day type conditions. 20' of Force 12 DXpedition mast were also brought down. The Yagi was ultimately placed on top of the concrete block (lower right), and strapped to the wood post (which is permenant). Height above the ocean was around 25', and about 40' back from the ocean. Guy ropes were also used.

Comparisons between the Yagi and verticals were made, and in most cases the verticals were much stronger. The most noticable difference was on the weak signals, which were FB copy on the verticals, but simply not there on the Yagi.
