The Hextenna™ is a high performance portable HF (6-20 & 30/40*), VHF (2M/220MHz), UHF (440MHz) antenna system

Executive Summary
The Hextenna™ is a portable system for 2 through 20 meters, plus 220MHz, & 440MHz, which has an option for a 30/40 meter add-on. The full-sized portable Hextenna™ by Alpha Antenna® is a multi-band system that is deployable as different antenna types. These include the options for a HF Vertical (with the addition of counterpoise), UHF Vertical (without counterpoise), and HF/VHF Dipole. This is also user configurable as a 2-15 Meter HF Delta Loop (with user supplied jumper wire between the tips of the dipole elements) or HF/VHF Yagi beam (by using multiple Hextenna™ systems). No matter what the antenna type you deploy, you will manually adjust the length of the telescopic whip(s) (and counterpoise for vertical deployment) when changing bands, which means you do not use an antenna tuner with this system.

To be clear
The whips for the Hextenna™ are telescopic, so as to enable you to adjust the whips/counterpoise and make the Hextenna™ resonate as close as possible for the band you are using. This antenna is just like a real Dipole, a real Vertical, and more. This is not a ‘no tune all-band antenna’, but is a full sized high performance antenna system.

The Hextenna™ is packable into a 24 x 4 1/2 inch space. Deployment can be achieved using the included Top of Mast Mount, which can be affixed to any sized pipe between 1 to 1 1/4 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 Top of Mast Mount affixed firmly to a well supported user provided mast.

The Hextenna™ uses adjustable telescopic whips for tuning and to provide continuous coverage from 2 meters through 20 meters plus 220MHz & 440MHz, and optional clip-on wire dipole elements for coverage of 30/40 meters. When setup as a 20 meter dipole antenna, for example, it has two self supporting telescopic whips that have a total deployed length of about 34 feet.
