Hex beam @ W5RRR

Hex beam project getting real.

Mother’s Day was spent getting up a used K4KIO hex.

The good news:  it unexpected included a 6m capability.

The bad news:  it didn’t come with 15m wires.

Ultimately, it will be a multi-band antenna to include 6m, 10m, 12m, 15m, 17m, 20m.

I’ll order the 15m wires this week, but in the meantime its mostly assembled with a few items to work on this week

Mounted on the newly installed TV rotor atop the 50′ crank up mast, perhaps we’ll see this setup active in the next week or so.

Also brought in an old 6 element 2m yagi.  Anyone interested in mounting this below the hex beam?

Stay tuned.
