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.
