Here are some comments from Chuck (KK6USY):

The Moxon is one of the Best portable Gain antennas and easy to make! In this video I show how I made a 20 meter Moxon Antenna for portable operation like POTA or SOTA. Yea I know SOTA might be a stretch for most of us! If you make this antenna for home use, I would beef up the base plate and use a heavier gauge wire 18 -12awg. Also look into some heavier duty fiberglass supports for the spreaders. Check out the Ham Radio Adventures Merch shop: https://kk6usy-ham-radio-adventures.m...
