Build It--6 meter Moxon Antenna


Antenna designed by the late Les Moxon (G6XN) continue to be popular with radio amateurs.

Moxons are lightweight, easy-to-build, and offer significant gain.

In this video, Michael Martens (KB9VBR) shows us how to design, build, test, and use a Moxon Antenna for the 6 meter Amateur Radio Band.

This antenna would be good choice for the ARRL Field Day or any other portable operation.

Here are some comments from Michael (KB9VBR):

The 6 meter band is hot in the summer time and there is no better way to exploit it than with a directional antenna like the 6 meter Moxon. The Moxon is a 2 element Yagi that is inexpensive and easy to build, but also offers great results with 5.5dbi of gain and a 25db front to back ratio The KB9VBR 6 Meter Moxon Antenna Parts list: 4 - 48 inch x 3x8 inch fiberglass fence posts 1 - 3D printed Moxon hub 1 - 3D printed hub adapter 1 - 3D printed Feedpoint center SO-239 chassis connector 20 feet 20 or 22 ga wire #6 x ½ inch machine screws, nuts, and washers 8 small Ring terminals String trimmer line Painters pole: 15 - 23 feet 3D Printed Hub and feedpoint STL files: Painters Pole 3D printed adapter: Plans and dimensions: Source for the 48 inch fiberglass fence posts: Fleet Farm: Tractor Supply: AC6LA Moxon Calculator: Build the Black Widow 15 meter Moxon: The Black Widow Moxon, now 70% lighter: --- My 3D Printer --- Creality Ender 3 v2 Neo 3D Printer: eSun PLA Pro (PLA+) black filament ************ Links may be affiliate links.
