Today I go through all of the steps and pieces for building the BuddiHex Hexbeam antenna from Buddpole. This might be the best portable ham radio antenna I have used in the field, and I would like your thoughts also.
Lightweight and portable 6 band (20m – 6m) hex beam perfect for everything from POTA activations to camping trips to small backyards or Field Day, and everything in-between. Total weight with wires for all bands attached is 9.5 lbs, making this one of the most lightweight hex beams available commercially and easy to use with most push-up masts.
Antenna package comes complete with all support cords and tensioners, wires for all bands 20m – 6m, 3 figure-8 line winders for wire storage, BNC terminated feed point (PL259 style soon available), and a padded Cordura carrying bag with shoulder strap.
SPECSTurning Radius 10 feet (3 meters)
Total Weight 9.50 lbs (4.3 kg)
Power Handling 1.5 KW
