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.

  • Classic Mk 2 baseplate

  • Mk2 Preliminary testing

  • Mk 2 Wire fixings

  • 20m testing

  • Reflector fixings

  • Driver fixings

  • Driver / Reflector fixings

  • Wire supports

My Classic Mk 1 baseplate arrangement failed in strong winter gales, so I rebuilt the antenna more robustly. This is the aluminium baseplate and rotator stub mast which I had welded up by a local engineering firm.
