On my main Skyneedle was supposed to go a RadioWavz Barrett Hexbeam with Broadband option. The antenna was bought about four years ago and health and then a home QTH move kept it from going up in the air.
RadioWavz built this antenna with the high power and heavy duty options, and it is purported to work as a rotatable dipole on 160/80/60/30m, a 2el wire beam on 40/6m and as a 3el(+) wire beam on 20/17/15/12/10m. Original configuration was using three antenna drop feedlines, but two can be combined with a harness they offered.
RadioWavz helped me out sending new element guides made of metal which replaced the DOA original fiberglass guides, replacing most of the parts missing from the original antenna (though the spare parts ordered have never arrived) and sold me a upgraded support rope set made of a Kevlar type material.
In the antenna building process twice I have had damage from deer getting into the antenna.
First incursion pulled a number of elements loose and broke one of the smaller fiberglass arm pieces. My calls and emails to RadioWavz had not been answered, when I figured out who supplied the fiberglass. Ordered new fiberglass parts direct and made the repair.
Second deer incursion again pulled some elements loose but this time half of the 40m element with insulators and spacer cord went missing. Presumption is it was caught on the deer’s rack and carried away until it could be shaken loose. The wire element I can cut locally but as my spare parts supply of extra insulators and cordage was never shipped, I’ve had to have the special insulators locally fabricated and I’m scrounging for similar cord. Again my emails and calls have not been answered by RadioWavz.
What I have learned is that the business was sold to the next generation, and the founders retired to another state, plus the next generation is up to their eyeballs dealing with a child’s severe health issues.
I get it. Family is WAY more important, period.
