This is a lightweight directional HF antenna, that has a low-profile footprint, solid construction, and DX-snagging design -- all for a truly affordable price.
The MFJ-1846 uses an updated G3TXQ element configuration for improved bandwidth, superior front-to-back performance, and low SWR. However, that`s just the beginning! MFJ takes the Hex Beam`s unique balanced-tension framework to a new level with rugged mounting hardware, exceptionally durable spreaders, and sliding antenna-wire guides -- all designed to ensure years of reliable service in tough 21st-century weather conditions.
Here are just a few of the MFJ-1846`s outstanding features:
Light weight -- mounts on a tripod, gable mount, or even chimney straps.
Proven directivity and gain from a time-tested design.
No touchy setup, 100% plug-n-play.
Rotates with an inexpensive rotor -- only 3.5 square-feet of wind loading.
Handles maximum legal power, all modes, all six bands.
Delivers full-band coverage without a tuner.
Great for contesting, QSY instantly between all six bands.
Just one coax feed, a real cost saver!
Sky-gray spreaders disappear against most backdrops.
Small footprint -- 11-foot turning radius fits cramped spaces.
Symmetrical footprint -- stays balanced when coated with ice and snow.
Great Value: Gain and directivity make all the difference when hunting DX or maintaining schedules, and the Hex Beam has a long history of delivering satisfying results where antenna options are limited.
