FM Yagi Antenna
YLV Series

Rev : P1 | Rev date :
The YLV3 yagi antenna is suitable for use as an element in VHF transmitting arrays. By arranging a number of these elements around a suitable tower or mast an omnidirectional or a number of directional radiation patterns can be achieved. The YLV3 can also be used as a stand alone antenna.
The antenna can be centre mounted for single antenna applications or by an extended boom for mounting to tower or mast in an array configuration. Bracing kits are supplied as standard with antennas that require them. Mounting hardware is stainless steel. To facilitate package and transport, yagi antennas are transported as components. Detailed assembly instructions are provided.
Mounting clamps and tower brackets are available to suit a range of tower types. Contact RFS with your requirements.


  • Suitable for use as an array element or for stand alone operation
  • Engineered for transmission of both Digital and Analog TV/Radio
  • Light weight and low wind load
  • All elements are DC grounded for lightning protection.
