These are 1 1/2 inches shorter than the original tubes on our hex beam; so you will need to telescope them into the larger sizes by 2 1/2 inches instead of the standard 4 inches. You might also wish to use a hose clamp on the end of the larger section of each telescoped junction for added strength against splitting.
Alternatively, you can obtain from Max Gain Systems lengths of 93 inches for each tube and for a custom cutting fee, have them cut these for the standard 48 inches.Air Coax Center Post, Equipped for 6 Bands
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.
