Hexbeam Photo Gallery

This gallery shows photographs of the various HexBeam antennas I have constructed over the past couple of years. It is not meant to be a step-by-step guide to construction, but rather a potpourri of techniques which may give you some ideas for constructing your own HexBeam.

If you don't want to fabricate your own bracket for fixing the baseplate to the centre post you could use a flange like this one from Keelite. I needed a short length of aluminium sleeve to take up the difference between the centre post O/D and the flange I/D. This is a view from the underside of the baseplate - the flange is so solid you wont need another one above the baseplate.
