Six Meters is HOT ! Enjoy MAXimum flat-top gain on Six meter flat-top antenna.



Six meters is hot, and when six is open, all you need is a good horizontal antenna to work long-distant "skip" stations. Enjoy MAXimum flat-top gain on Six meters with this horizontal antenna. Since most single-sideband is horizontally polarized, the BUXCOMM MAXSIX will meet them, "head-on."

This version of the 6 Meter Extended Zepp antenna is designed for 50 ohm coax feed. The elements are made of high-tensile strength antenna wire, It is super flexible by using 41 strands of silver-flashed copper. The short section of ladder-line is part of the transmission line transformer (TLT) that transitions the impedance between the BUXCOMM VBALUN and the impedance at the feed-point of this antenna.

The total length of the BUXCOMM Double-Zepp is approximately 25 feet. This length represents a 1.28 wavelength for a Double-Zepp for six meters. We have constructed all the main connections and weather-proofed them so your effort installing the MAXSIX will be minimized.

The center insulator is a block of fiber-glass chosen for its strength and insulation qualities at VHF.  Be sure to use CS 104 CoaxSeal to seal the connections between the coax connector and the VBALUN. As with any antenna project use caution, and read the precautions shown at the top of this page. 

The length of the ladder-line is calculated for the middle of the six meter band, or approximately 52.5 Mhz. In addition, the elements are cut for this section of the six meter band.  This Six meter (MAXSIX) Extended Double-Zepp antenna and BALUN will handle 750 watts SSB. At FSK, SSTV, or PSK the RMS power should be reduced to 200 watts.            Coaxial cable NOT included.
