What about this? My new Hexbeam SP7IDX is finaly up and works great.

It took long time to get the kit.  Waldi in order to save me money had shipped the kit by surface mail.  Needless to say it had taken more than half a year since order to have it on my doorstep.
Every thing was also complicated that we travel a lot so we were not at home most of the time.

When I found the time to assemble the antenna, I had to leave it on the roof, because we were leaving Sydney for another trip.











We are now home for more than a week before I had a day to do it.  It has to be calm day, no rain otherwise I'd get blown off the roof wet as well.  Today was the day.

It is up and working.  The photos are not bright.  It is very overcast.








Thank you Waldi SP7IDX the quality is very good.
