2 Element Moxon - BandII 88-108Mhz - (Heavy Duty)

A 2 Element Heavy Duty 'Moxon' for Commercial Band II FM (88-108Mhz) band.


Product Code – BandII_MOXON

A 2 element MOXON antenna for Band II (88-108MHz) Commercial FM Band.

Originally designed by Les Moxon G6XN, the antenna is stealthy and is an ideal solution for those whose space is limited or restricted, but also gives the user a directional antenna for a smaller footprint.

We were asked to construct this for a user in Italy purely as a receive antenna, but given the construction it can be used in a licensed TX situation.

The Moxon design has the end parts of the element bend at 90 degrees which helps save space. The design gives the antenna good forward gain and front to back. The Vortex ‘Moxon’ also includes a gamma match as all installations are different. This gives the owner much better control over the match allowing adjustment over a wider frequency range, useful with this particular antenna if the user needs to set the resonant frequency slightly higher or lower than the factory set ’93MHz’.

All Vortex antennas are factory tested prior to dispatch and starting measurements are included with the instruction package. Moxon antennas for 17m and lower frequencies include a small aluminium support, ‘Mastrant‘ synthetic guys and marine grade 316 stainless fittings which prevents element sag on each sides. As ‘Moxon’s’ are not designed as wideband antennas (and Band II is wideband at 20Mhz), we center this antenna at 93MHz giving it a usable bandwidth of 16MHz.

Like other antennas in the ‘Vortex’ range, this unit is manufactured from lightweight but extremely strong construction grade 6082-T6/*AA6082-T6 Aluminium stock with a heavy duty 10 guage boom.

All Vortex Moxon’s come in heavy duty format as standard which includes Heavy Duty Element Brackets, Heavy Duty Polyamide Element Clamps and M10 Stainless Steel Hardware. These are about as tough as you’ll get anywhere – guaranteed.

Antenna is supplied with all hardware except boom to mast mount (see below).

All VORTEX Antennas can be shipped WITHOUT any boom to mast mounting plates. Select this option from the drop-down menu when purchasing. Other options include the choice of mounting plates and complete mounting solutions with U-Bolts and Brackets.
