A 6 Meter Two Element Beam For Restricted Spaces.


 

Thanks to Hayden (VK7HH) for this modified two-element beam for the 6 meter Amateur Radio Band.  This simple antenna is a modified Moxon design which is easy to make, takes up little space, and provides a modest amount of gain.

Hayden and his friends take you step-by-step through the design, construction, testing, and use of this fascinating antenna.

Here are some comments from Hayden (VK7HH):

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.
