Traditional vs. Metal Hex Beam Mast
On the left is the usual non-conductive center post mast used for hex beam antennas. The material is often fiberglass or PVC pipe. On the right is a new all aluminum center post mast. An additional non-conductive post will be placed next to the mast for the hex beam feeders. See the article elsewhere on this site for details.
The aluminum antenna pieces are all together resulting in the 43 foot finished result. It was assembled while attached the the Tilt-Base mount and is shown here ready to raise. It is a very light, but very wiggly and cumbersome antenna.
Beautiful ain't it.
