KIO Hexagonal Beam
Start with one or two bands. Any beam can be easily expanded later by purchase of Addband kits. For example, a mono band 20 meter hexagonal beam can be expanded later for use on 15 meters by purchase of nothing but a 15 meter Addband kit. Or, a mono band 20 meter hex can be expanded later to add 17 and 10 meters by purchase of a 17 meter Addband kit and a 10 meter Addband kit. There is no price penalty for adding the bands later rather than now.
