“Performance results of MFJ-1846 Six-band hex-beam antenna. The antenna shows great directionality and ample gain. The SWR doesn’t quite cover the 20 meter, 10 meter, or 6 meter band, but does cover 17, 15, and 12 meters. I also look at the Hy-gain AR-500 antenna rotator. On the air performance on 20 meters was spectacular.”
MFJ-1846 Hex Beam
New Hex Beam from MFJ delivers solid gain and directivity on 20,17,15,12,10, and 6 Meters in a low-profile package that will have your pocketbook and your neighbors smiling!
When it comes to lightweight directional HF antennas, the MFJ-1846 Hex Beam tops the list for its low-profile footprint, solid construction, and DX-snagging design — all for a truly affordable price. The MFJ-1846 uses an updated G3TXQ element configuration for improved bandwidth, superior front-to-back performance, and low SWR. However, that`s just the beginning! MFJ takes the Hex Beam`s unique balanced-tension framework to a new level with rugged mounting hardware, exceptionally durable spreaders, and sliding antenna-wire guides — all designed to ensure years of reliable service in tough 21st-century weather conditions.
Here are just a few of the MFJ-1846`s outstanding features:
[ ] Light weight — mounts on a tripod, gable mount, or even chimney straps.
Great Value: Gain and directivity make all the difference when hunting DX or maintaining schedules, and the Hex Beam has a long history of delivering satisfying results where antenna options are limited. However, it`s no secret that these antennas are expensive for small companies to manufacture, a reality often reflected in the price! That`s where MFJ`s massive purchasing power and extensive manufacturing capability kick in to your advantage. It`s a matter of simple arithmetic, you`ll get more antenna for less money when you order the MFJ-1846!
