      Bill,

      Either the table in section 3 here:
      http://www.karinya.net/g3txq/hexbeam/broadband/

      or the right-hand table here:
      http://www.leoshoemaker.com/hexbeambyk4kio/broadhexspecs.html

      They both have identical dimensions.

      73,
      Steve G3TXQ

        Leo, since 6 meter wire lengths are the same in both of your charts,
        should the first chart's 6m numbers have an inch taken away or should
        the second chart add the inch?
