Performance results of the G3TXQ Broad Band Hexagonal Beam
Hear the difference in signal level from back of the hexagonal beam as compared
to the front. This is an important measure of the beam performance as you
generally want less signals coming in from the undesired directions.
These audio clips were recorded by G3TXQ in January 2008 from switching back
and forth every 3 - 5 seconds between one beam and another aimed 180 degrees
to the rear.
Station in Iceland on 20 Meters
Station in USA on 17 Meters
On air recordings to demonstrate front to back performance
These SWR data were measured at the radio location connected to
the hexagonal beam with a RG 213 transmission line 60 feet long.
The antenna is 30 feet in elevation.
