Reviews Summary for MacTenna Simple Beam
MacTenna Simple Beam Reviews: 0 Average rating: (no reviews) MSRP: $1100
Description: The MacTenna "Simple Beam" uses a patented switching technology to change the resonant frequency of a 3 element Yagi antenna. Band changing is nearly instantaneous and is accomplished without the use of motors, mechanisms, or control cables.

The control signals to the "Simple Beam" are sent over the coaxial feed line. The antenna band is selected by a small controller located at the operating position. Because the "Simple Beam" is a wide spaced 50 Ohm design, there is no need to continuously change the element lengths as operating is changed. This eliminates the need for a serial communication link between the the rig and the antenna controller as is required with close spaced, narrow bandwidth, motorized antennas. This means that the "Simple Beam" will work with all radios made in the past, present, or in the future.
Product is in production.
