    Stressed Moxon 6 meter antenna.

    I recently installed this little 2 el yagi for 6 meters. I'm using it with a light duty TV rotator. Performance has been surprisingly good so far. http://www.parelectronics.com/stress-moxon.php

    Sounds like a great idea! Stressed, sounded weird at first but if I had to perform that good in that amount of space I'd be stressed too. How much did it set you back George?

    I made a 6 meter Moxon a long time ago with PVC pipe and wire. Used it portable/roving

    It kicked ass, but broke in a bad overnight windstorm, oh well

    I had a 20 meter mostly wire Moxon as well, amazing for camping... I ran it vertical

    I have been doing some on air testing between the old 3 ring saturn 6 halo and the moxon. It's not even close. The moxon is so much better. There is a 6 meter beacon in Philly right across the river from me. When the antenna is pointed at it, the signal is around 10 over 9. Rotate it 180 degrees, and the signal drops down into the noise.
