A High Performance Antenna for restricted spaces


Thanks to Hayden of the "Ham Radio DX" video channel for this ultra simple Moxon Antenna for the 6 meter Amateur Radio Band.  If you have limited space for an antenna, please try this design. 

Moxon Antennas are simple, easy-to-build antennas that deliver good performance at a moderate cost.  You can follow the basic instruction in this video to build Moxon Antennas for several Amateur Radio Bands.

Here are some comments from Hayden:

Our Field Day is coming up, so we decided to build one for the 6 meter band and demonstrate the fun that can be had building and experimenting with antennas! This is a Moxon antenna and it is a popular directional 2 element beam antenna that takes up less space (70%) than a standard yagi.
