Hex Beam Wires Page

 

I will document the construction of the spreader cords and element wires for the Hex Beam antenna.

 

Here I am prepping the copper tubing piece for use as a crimp collar.

 I am using 1/4" soft copper and am drilling it out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After drilling a de-burring tool was used to chamfer the ends,

 

A 1/4" hole was drilled 3/16" deep in the board to support the piece of copper

 

 

 

 

 

With the tubing held in the hole the cord can be started through the collar

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I finish by pulling the cord through and then crimping with the 50A portion of the Andy Crimp tool

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The finished end of the cord.
