Description – This antenna is a full-sized HF/VHF Dipole and HF/VHF/UHF Vertical, which is also configurable as a HF/VHF Yagi beam by using the optionally available ‘HexTenna Yagi’ add-on from the selections listed above. This is a high performance antenna system, not a not a ‘no tune all-band antenna’. There are no lossy traps, baluns, or coils that have to be manually tapped whe changing frequencies. Rather, the whips for the HexTenna™ are full-sized Telescopic elements that extend to 17 feet 9 inches. This design enables you to adjust the whips/counterpoise, and make the HexTenna™ resonate as close as possible for the band you are using. For example, when deployed for 20 meters, the system has two self supporting telescopic whips that have a total deployed length of about 34 feet.
Deployment – 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-Tripod or with the included Top of Mast Mount affixed firmly to a well supported user provided mast.
