      I bought this superlative multiband beam antenna new from the manufacturer about a year ago. I never opened the two boxes it came in!

      This listing may earn itself a "caution" from QRZ's admins, since the boxes are depicted unopened. I could cut them open and take pictures of the packed contents, but then they wouldn't be "virgin!" I have sold many items on QRZ over the years, including an unopened ICOM radio, so I hope you will all understand. I trust that the intact shipping labels showing the mfr. and my name will quell any suspicions some may have; additionally, with PayPal you have the right to rescind your payment to me.

      A local ham uses one and swears by it, so I bought the antenna, 200' of coax, and a light-duty rotor to set it all up. Unfortunately, I never got around to setting it up, and now our home is on the market and I need to sell it.

      The price for a new one shipped is $570; I will sell this shipped UPS Ground to you in two boxes for $475. I accept PayPal (no USPS money orders, sorry). I have been on eBay for over 20 years with 100% feedback/950 under the username "cbhamcollectorsestate."

      As you can see, the original boxes show my name as well as Bill and Roger Rockwell's return address (NA4RR).

      My cell is 925 330-2218 and you can call me before 8pm PST. Thanks, Peter Kendall KM6U Sonora, CA

      Below is some text from their website, http://www.k4hex.com/ :

      The NA4RR Hexagonal Beam (commonly referred to as the hex beam) is a popular antenna based on the G3TXQ design. Our antenna doesn’t require a large expensive tower, many people are using inexpensive push up poles. Check out some of our customer’s installations. Hex Beams provide great performance and are directional. The NA4RR Hexagonal beam won’t break the bank (even though it includes 6M), allowing the average amateur radio operator to get in on the DX. If you are looking for an antenna that you’ll not only enjoy but will make the XYL happy too, then our hex beam is the right choice for you.

      The NA4RR broadband hexagonal beam is not a "kit". This is a plug-and-play design that not only fits your budget but is easy to assemble. No cutting, crimping, or tuning of the wires is required. The only tools needed are a pair of pliers and a pair of 7/16 wrenches. Most users report they are on the air in less than 90 minutes after opening the boxes. Here is a short video describing how to assemble the antenna.

      Our antenna is designed with quality and customer satisfaction in mind. We use first-class components in the construction of our antennas. Many components that other manufactures buy, we manufacture in house to help you get the most bang for your buck.

      I was politely advised that my listing has to be flagged with the "Caution." I have since edited the listing to explain why I thought it better to leave the boxes unopened; if the antenna doesn't sell in a little while, then I will cut open the boxes, photograph the packed contents, and resubmit the ad.

      Did the deal go through or is it still available?

      Interesting as your first pic of a box clearly shows that it has been opened and taped back up.
