COLLECTION OF 6M EME ANTENNAS
SAMPLING OF SOME OF THE ANTENNAS USED TO COMPLETE 6M EME CONTACTS WITH W7GJ

Most of the stations contacted on 6m EME have used horizontally polarized yagi antennas, JT65A mode, at least several hundred watts, and ground gain when the moon was near their horizon.  However,  W7GJ also has completed with ES2RJ (who was only using a 4 element beam and 300w) and W3RGA (who was using only 100w and a 3 element yagi by M2).   Other 100w stations worked include EA8/G8BCG (who was using a 6M7JHV yagi ), YU7EF (with his homebrew 7 element yagi) and G0LFF (with his  5 element LFA yagi).  You don't need a huge antenna to complete at least a few 6m EME contacts (although you can compare the performance of various types of commonly used 6m antennas here). More important is a good, a dedicated 6m antenna with a smooth, clear area in front of the antenna for good ground gain (looking out over the ocean is the VERY BEST!), low loss feed line, a quiet QTH, and choosing a time of month with optimum conditions for EME.  I hope you get some good ideas from these photos and I can include YOUR antenna here soon!  Good luck!
