Replacement Parts

Break a part? Check first to see if it is covered under warranty. If not, you can buy the component at the prices below and be assured of the same quality as the original KIO hexagonal beam.  Or, if you are building your own hexagonal beam, we can supply some of the components.
Spreader Arm Sections

rp-spreader

We do not stock replacement fiberglass tubes. Contact Max Gain Systems  for replacements by clicking the links here:

Large Spreader section (46 1/2 in. X 1 in.)                     RT-1-4

Medium Spreader section (46 1/2 in. X 3/4 in.)           RT-34-4G

Small Spreader section (46 1/2 in. X 1/2 in.)                 RT-12-4G

These are 1 1/2 inches shorter than the original tubes on our hex beam; as a result you might need to push the wire clamps out on some of the spreader arms in order to fit the wires to a frame with one or more slightly shortened arms.

Air Coax Center Post, Equipped for 6 Bands

Center post

The Air Coaxial Center post is made of polished aluminum and stainless steel and has six sets of terminals for a hexagonal beam with up to six bands. The center post fits into the top of the base plate and has an eye bolt on the top for anchoring radial support cords that extend to the ends of the spreader arms. The insulators on the terminals are PTFE for high current and heat resistance. Your 50 ohm coaxial cable connects to a high quality Teflon insulated SO 239 female connector mounted at the top of the center post for an ideal match to the hexagonal beam. Moisture and UV radiation are not a problem with this premium quality center post.
