The Hex Beam is in place and operational! After months of planning and organizing, the Hex Beam was pressed into service for the VHF contest on Saturday, June 8, 2019. The official antenna crew under the direction of senior club members, hauled heavy steel, concrete, and antenna components up to the Red Cross building roof in several stages. We now have extra directional capability for HF 20 meters and up – including 6 meters. This unique antenna certainly gives our club location a distinctive visual footprint with the upside-down umbrella design.
