Me, back to Startz Hill. I've gathered the pieces for a 6m Moxon. Hoping to put it together over the next week sometime.

This one is so late in the Es season that the odds of good openings have dropped quite a bit.  But after the disaster of ARRL VHF Contest ( one short opening to the SW USA on Day 2) and given that our antennas are already up (  5 el on 6M at 50 ft, 11 elements on 2M at 55 ft and 14 elements on 70cm at 60 ft, the group has decided to gather and see how propagation treats us.  We  are hoping for a good start at least.

6m Antenna built and tested. I'll call it, "The Stressless Moxon". A 1 hour project. With no trimming, 1.3:1 at 50.150, trending long.

The fiberglass spreaders allow for easily adjusting "the gap" if needed. Once constructed and tie-wrapped, it breaks down into a short 4 piece bundle, just right for field use.

Loosley based on W4OP's Stressed Moxon design, and measurements from N1RIK http://moxonantennaproject.com/n1rik/n1rik.htm
