You're comparing apples with oranges!

No - the hexbeam wont give you as good performance as the A3WS; but you get 6 bands instead of 2, with a smaller turn radius and less weight.

Is Ants lead time below 8 weeks now? I believe he had a lot going on in his life at the time I ordered so it took a while although at least he took the time to email updates which was far better than 8 weeks of silence. Well worth the wait though for anyone thinking of buying a commercial one instead of homebrewing.

GW3XCR, at least there's years of experience behind the company ....ever hear of him Steve?
....or maybe it's a reissued callsign giving that perception. :)

Wow! The results are more similar than two dummy loads :)

Must be built to very close tolerances.

I think they must be using your vertical coax.

Perhaps someone should ask how, other than "cut and paste", he arrived at his diagramatic charts facts and figures!
