on a push-up mast.
Jeff, KG6GXV assisted John install his antenna. In
the above photograph Jeff is shown taping down the coax to the push up mast
right above John's ham shack. The mast bracket on this Moxon is made from a
synthetic kitchen cutting board. Jeff has become a new MOXON project participant
and is currently building his own Moxon.
Close up bottom view of the "cutting board" mast/pole
shack is pictured at left. It's12 X 24 and about 12 feet high.
This Photo provides a good comparison of overall size of John's quad as
compared to his moxon which is about 18 feet back (left) from the
tower. As you can see quite a size difference between the two
antennas. None-the-less, John reports that he has worked England and
Belgium with both antennas. He generally received the same
signal reports when
switching between both antennas.
