Excited by the onset of solar cycle 24, Moxon rectangle construction methods are revisited with some new ideas and materials for a 10m antenna. Snap-in fiberglass tubing, Home Depot wire, and a hub made from composite lumber team up to form an antenna that can be assembled in a few minutes with no tools. When mounted at 25 feet over average ground the 10m antenna delivers up to 11.3 dBi gain, 40 dB F/B ratio, 19 take-off-angle, and has a turning radius of 6.5 feet. Included is a chart for building the antenna for 6m through 20m using the same technique. (I would like to thank N4HAY for building and testing the 20m version).
