The 2MXP22A began as a new special antenna for Mike, K6MYC. He wanted and antenna that would make it’s presence known on EME. It has just one more element in each plane than the famous 2MXP20 but another 5 foot of boom length boom length. Most importantly, it produces 3/4 of a db more gain than the ‘XP20 and just 3/4 of a db less than the world renowned 2M5WL. It came out so nice with a very flat match and a boom length right in between the others, it was just too good not to add it to the great family of M2 2M antennas!
Just a pair of 2MXP22A’s will make a great low cost, low weight, low wind load EME system. The M2 boys have come up with an optimum cross boom kit ( CB-LB-13) for two antennas and it is still small enough to use with the Yaesu G-5500 Az-El rotator system. Want more EME aluminum in the air? The M2 MT-1000 Elevation rotator makes arrays up to 8 X 2MXP22A’s a piece of cake to steer!
The system is ideal for terrestrial contacts as well. It so nice when a new guy comes on 250 miles away running 50W and a vertical, you can instantly switch to vertical polarity using a coax relay like our HPR-1 and BOOM, the guy is armchair copy!
M2 has a full line of power dividers, phasing lines, preamps sequencers (S2) including the NEW 2M-1K2 solid stateamp.See the whole new generation of high performance EME arrays and systems on our web site!.
