DIY 6 meter Moxon antenna


 

Just in time for the ARRL Field Day or any other portable operation.

In this video, Michael Martens (KB9VBR) introduces us to the versatile, easy-to-make, and highly efficient 6-meter Moxon antenna.

This antenna can be added to your "field kit" or Field Day bag in a matter of minutes.  Six meter propagation improves during the summer, and this project is the perfect answer to snag some 6-meter contacts.

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: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:664...
