M2 Antennas 2M18XXX 2 Meter Yagi Antennas are 18 element high performance beams with booms over 5 wavelengths long! Known as the "Standard" to dedicated VHF operators, these antennas have been used extensively for over a decade by moon bouncers and many other weak signal enthusiasts around the world!

Depicted here in a two-antenna vertical stack, the 2M18XXX beams have clean, sharp patterns that yield a very good G/T (gain/temperature in K, Kelvin). That means, in everyday language, that you hear more signal and less noise. They are ideal for a competitive single antenna installation or in stacked arrays, which will yield an additional 6 dB of gain in a four antenna installation! All hardware is stainless, except for the U-bolts. Mechanically, the 2M18XXX booms are strong in the middle and tapered in 1/4" steps to reduce weight and wind area. M2 has integrated their computer-optimized design with their unique driven element feedpoint module. CNC machined aluminum housings feature "O" ring seals on all three connectors and internal connections are potted in a space-age silicone gel that seals out moisture and enhances power handling capability. Even in 2 meter operations, that is very important to those who feel "life is too short for QRP"!

M2 Antennas 2M18XXX 2 Meter Yagi Antennas are designed for the pure performance demands of the most demanding VHF operators. That is why these beams are tailored for the low end of the 2 meter band and horizontal polarity for SSB, CW and digital modes. Their rugged construction and unparalleled performance mean that by all standards, the "18XXX" antennas are true thoroughbreds among VHF antennas!
