Here's all you want to know about the stealthy gain antennas designed by the late Les Moxon (G6XN).  Webmaster Steve Hammer (K6SGH) has done an excellent job of explaining the theory, design, and working properties of this unusual rectangle antenna that can be crafted for both HF and VHF/UHF work.

Steve recommends you start with a simple rectangular moxon for 6 meters and 2 meters.  Steve says, "The moxon rectangle is a superb antenna that is fun to build, works like a champ and is virtually indestructible."

The moxon design is great for portable, emergency, Field Day, and home use. Try one--you'll be pleasantly surprised. At the end of his article, Steve lists more than 30 moxon projects you can try at your home or next Field Day.  Have fun!
