Item specifics

New: A brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging (where packaging is ... Read moreabout the condition
Frequency Band(s): HF
HF Directional Beam: K4KIO Kit, per G3TXQ's Broadband Hex Beam Design Directivity: Mono-Directional
My plan was to build a Hex Beam, but at the last minute friends came to my aid to make
my life-long dream come true -- and we built and installed a 2 el Cubical Quad.

This auction is for my 6 Band Hex Beam kit for 20/17/15/12/10/6 Meters
based on the K4KIO version of G3TXQ's improved Broadband Design.
Using Leo's well-written, detailed step-by-step directions...and these Brand New Components,
this is your opportunity to save a bundle and enjoy great personal pride from
building a high performance HF Beam that is a proven 'band-opener!'

What you get, in the component photos above* :

The 'split' conduit Center Post drilled & marked for all HF bands...
Heavy gauge aluminum center base plate with mounting flanges installed on both sides...
U-Bolts with nylon lock nuts for attaching fiberglass element spreaders...
250 feet of 14 ga. Flex Weave copper wire from the Wireman...
P-Clamp wire attachments, Stainless Hose Clamps (to attach wire & ropes to spreaders)...
200 feet of Dacron rope from the Wireman with element tip spacers already made...
2 big bags of all Stainless Hardware needed, and more...
This is 98% of what you will need for the project!

Not included, and what you will need to furnish:

- Purchase Fiberglass Spreaders (a $119.95 package from Max-Gain Systems)...
-  Drill the holes in the aluminum plate for U-Bolts to secure spreaders ...
- Measure and cut the Wire Elements according to instructions...
-  Do the final antenna assembly.

In doing so, you will save yourself a lot of money and have the personal satisfaction
of having built a fine beam antenna that provides an exceptionally 
"High Gain per dollar" invested !  

(See K4KIO.com, DX Engineering, and Traffie Technologies for pricing comparisons)

In Summary . . .
The Hex Beam is wildly popular on the DX Bands today, provides: 
Excellent Forward Gain, Front-to-Back, has a low profile often blending in with the trees in the background, and is easily turned with a light-duty rotator.  Many are mounted on masts; I have a friend who suspends his below a large limb of an oak tree in his yard for total concealment!

Thanks for looking...and Good Luck in the Auction!
