measuring toolsSpecifications of the KIO Hexbeam

Bands 20, 17, 15, 12, 10, 6 meters or any combination
Antenna elements 2 per band
Gain (free space) Peak Approx. 5.5 dBi (Peak Gain over gnd at 1/2 wavelength is approx. 9 dBi.)
Front/Back Peak >20 dB  (varies by band)
VSWR Less than 2:1 across nearly all bands
Feed line 50 ohms, single coax cable for all bands
Turning Radius 10.8 Ft  (3.3m)
Diameter of the beam 21.6 Ft
Height of the beam 39 in. (99 cm)  from base plate to top of center post
Weight 25 lbs (11.3kg) for beam equipped with all bands
Wind Load Area 5 Sq Ft  (0.46 sq m)
Power  2,000 watts
Mast requirement Several mast sizes (See detailed discussion)
This is an EZNEC radiation pattern of a 20 meter hex beam 30 feet above ground. All bands have similar patterns when 1/2 wavelength above ground.
