Understanding the Hexbeam

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.

  • Preliminary testing

  • Final assembly

  • End spacing attachment

This is the arrangement I used to attach the intermediate band end-spacing cords. Wind a couple of turns of insulation tape around the spreader on the inside of the tie-wrap if you're afraid it might slip inwards.
