KIO Hexagonal Beam
This plug and play hexagonal beam 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 is the same.

The hexagonal beam comes with your choice of the bottom bracket to fit a standard push up mast of 1.25 inches outside diameter as shown on the left, or for an extra charge, a universal clamp that will fit any mast size from 1.25 inches to 2.5 inches as shown on the right. You can see more detail on the universal clamp here.
If you don’t order the Universal Clamp, the standard bracket for a 1.25″ mast on the left will be provided. Unless you are ordering a hexagonal beam, do NOT order the Universal Clamp here; instead place your order on the Replacement Parts page. (If you order the Universal Clamp here for $39 without ordering a hex beam, your order will be canceled and your payment refunded.)
