KIO Hexbeam

This plug and play hexbeam is available for any combination of bands 20, 17, 15, 12, 10 and 6 meters. This is not a box of parts. The five main components are already assembled; you just plug them together in an hour and then get on the air and play.

Start with 20 meters. Any beam can be easily expanded now or later by purchase of additional bands.

So get started on 20 meters, the band that works even in the down sunspot cycle and add other bands as conditions get better. Or just order all the bands now. The price for all six bands will add up to $821.

The bottom of the Hexbeam baseplate is shown at left with the center post protruding below the bottom of the baseplate about 8 inches. The Hexbeam can be mounted on your mast by inserting this post (1.3 inches O.D) into a larger mast as shown to the left and cross bolting it. Or a pair of pipe to pipe clamps can be used as shown right. The clamps do not come with the Hexbeam unless you order them.

The pipe to pipe clamps can be purchased in the Optional Accessories below.

Shim for steel push up mast into KIO bottom flange

The flange here makes a very secure connection to the steel push up masts made by Rohn and Channelmaster. However, the flange inside diameter is 1.31 inches (i.d.) but the top section of these steel push up masts are 1.25 inches o.d. This means a slight wobble unless some kind of shim arrangement is used. these are simple to make but we can save you the trouble with the shim we have fashioned here, designed expressly and only for use on the Rohn and Channelmaster steel push up masts coupled as shown to our legacy flange on the bottom of our baseplate.

Item Price
Bottom Flange Shim kit $9.00
