This was a great project build and went the way of most of my antenna builds and projects, over budget, over man hours, over materials. But man let me tell you this thing was a serious performer and pile up buster on 40 meters. Essentially a full size 2 element 40 meter beam at 60′. It took every bit of legal limit but what it could not take anymore was Texas weather. After 2 years the Hexful Hexx collapsed onto itself after one of the spreaders broke. After getting it off the tower and I inspected the failure point and I am fairly sure it was my construction method at fault. DO NO PUT SCREWS THROUGH FIBER GLASS SPREADERS!
