    NICE work!!

    Opinions on the Hex? Did you add the ice kit? Hard to handle? I'll be hauling it up 40' if i get it, wondering how awkward it might be
    Are you using anything for below 20Mhz?
    Kudos on the panel box...i was thinking along the same lines but mounted on the tower, also to utilize arrestors and with a ground-bus...i have to go up to the second floor

    No Opinion on the Hex to date. This is my first beam so this is new territory for me. The beam is just a little awkward but I was able to place it on the end of the mast on the tower by myself climbing up a 8ft step ladder. So you shouldn't have any trouble managing it. I do have plans to put a loop that I can try and tune for 6M-160M. I too an using arrestors that are at the base of the tower.
