The HexStick™ is a HF, VHF, UHF portable antenna

Executive Summary
Designed as a multi-band, portable antenna for 20 through 10 meters, plus 220MHz VHF, & 440MHz UHF, the HexStick™ is a high-performance and full sized resonant vertical that forms the first building blocks for what can later be transformed into the Hextenna™ with just a few added components. High-performance and no tuner is required, as you simply adjust the length of the telescopic whip when changing bands.

Expand your your HexStick™ into the Hextenna™, which adds a full-sized 2-40 meter Dipole to your antenna tool-kit. This would also include a user configurable option to deploy the HexTenna™ as a 2-15 Meter HF Delta Loop (with a user supplied jumper wire between the tips of the dipole elements) or HF/VHF Yagi beam (by using multiple Hextenna™ systems).

To be clear
The whip for the HexStick™ is telescopic, so as to enable you to adjust the whip and make the HexStick™ resonate as close as possible for the band you are using. This is not a ‘no tune all-band antenna’, but is a full sized high performance antenna system.

Deployment
The HexStick™ is packable into a 24 x 3 inch space. Deployment can be achieved using the included Jaw Mount, which can be affixed to any sized mast between 1 to 2 inch outside diameter. It is recommended that you ALWAYS guy this system, with the exception of deployment on the optional & recommended HD-FMJ Tripod or with the included Jaw Mount affixed firmly to a well supported user provided mast.

Operation
The HexStick™ uses adjustable telescopic whip for tuning and to provide continuous coverage from 20 meters through 10 meters plus 220MHz & 440MHz. When setup as a 20 meter vertical antenna, for example, it has a self supporting telescopic whip that has a total deployed length of about 17 feet 9 inches.
