Picked up a used K4KIO Hexbeam awhile back and finally got around to putting it together. Hopefully use it on field day at the end of the month. Initial testing is encouraging. Checked SWR's across the bands, all were less than 2:1 and many were less than 1.5:1 at about 3 feet off the ground. One of my commo friends was about to push back for a trip. The older Boeing 737's have HF radios when VHF and UHF are out of range. Needless to say radio check was good! Can't wait to put it on top of the tower.
