If you need a compact, simple, and inexpensive 2-element HF beam for your amateur radio station, then the "Moxon Antenna" or "Moxon Rectangle" is for you. The Moxon Antenna is a simple and mechanically robust two-element parasitic array antenna that exhibits modest gain and some directivity.  The antenna is named after it inventor Les Moxon (G6XN). In this video from HC1ZIX, we get an exceptionally clear discussion of the theory, design, and advantages of this easily-made antenna.  Why not build this antenna for your home or portable station?   You may be surprised just how well this basic "rectangle antenna" performs.
