4ele HB9CV for 6m

Since some time I own a 2ele HB9CV for 6m. It did some great job in past as a portable setup in JO61hg. Now it was time to have some more gain. In the internet I found the assembly instruction for the 2ele. I was surprised to read that there is also a 4ele version available.

The only differences are:

  1. 2 more elements
  2. longer boom
  3. 4db more gain

Model A502HB A504HB
Frequency MHz 50-53 MHz 50-53 MHz
Gain 6.3dbi 10.8dbi
Power Rating (P.E.P.) 400 W 400 W
Impedance 50 Ohm 50 Ohm
Connector UHF UHF
VSWR 1.5:1 1.5:1
Element Phasing 2 4
Front to Back Ratio 15db 12db
Boom Length 750mm 3250mm
Longest Element 3000mm 3000mm

So I prepared a new boom and two additional elemts. The manual had all the numbers in place I needed.

The new 4ele was setup first at 8m above ground at our portable QTH in JO61hg and was working great.
