Hexbeam Photo Gallery

This gallery shows photographs of the various HexBeam antennas I have constructed over the past couple of years. It is not meant to be a step-by-step guide to construction, but rather a potpourri of techniques which may give you some ideas for constructing your own HexBeam.

My Classic Mk1 baseplate was fabricated from a plastic kitchen cutting board. Three steel right-angle brackets were bolted to the baseplate to enable it to be attached to the centre post.
