The QM8 antenna is a very simple easy to build 8 elements Ultra Wide Spaced Yagi-Uda with 1.59 m boom length for the lower 432 MHz CW-SSB-MGM band.
It exhibits a forward gain of 11.85 dBd; i.e. 14 dB forward gain over the isotropic radiator, while the F/R is about 12.5 dB.
Elements diameter is 5 mm aluminium boom is wood. It exhibits a 50 Ohms purely resistive impedance at feed point, and it is coupled to the 50 Ohms coaxial cable by the means of the 1:1 coaxial balun.
It seems ok; the impedance bandwidth is ultra wide and flat.
