[Ask] Set up new purchased antenna
2015-08-22 08:23
Need your help to activate new antenna...

I purchased 5-element Yagi (17m), rotator and antenna selector by today. I'm done with editor to make rotator and selector visible,
The issue is when I tried to change my default IDC to 5-element Yagi (17m),the light is red still ON..assume the Yagi not active yet.

Currently, I able to use IDC antenna only not the Yagi

Please help guys,

regards

Hi Ronni,

if you see the different antennas in the selector, they are working. You can activate an antenna by double-click (not only one click). That meight be the reason.
And of course a 17m Yagi only on the 17 meters band, that's for sure.

Otherwise try to restart your HamSphere program. If the issue still exists, write a message to the support.

I just realized that Yagi for 17m in HS4 only work for 17m only, no harmonic frequensies resonant for other band..:(
Thats the reason why I cannot find my Yagi when working in 10m..:)

Well, my working band is 40-10M..I need directional antenna for these bands .
Can I send back the Yagi to HS store and replace to multiband antenna.I will pay for any additional cost for replacing.

You can put it into the second-hand shop and after (re)selling you get this money for your account.
You can buy (maybe also from second hand) e.g. a Cardioid or multi-band or whatever you want.

Of course, a 17 meter antenna can't work on 10 meters (like I wrote above as well):
