    Not only are the food not on the shelves, and other shortages, but even Ham radio!

    HF Antennas! I wanted to order HF Hex Beam, backed order due to delivery issues..(All suppliers)

    Has anyone else experiencing the same issues...

    A Hexbeam is a nice antenna. In the meantime, are you in a location where you could build your own monoband yagi?

    Actually, I am working on it...I did have some MGS Spreaders handy (Bought earlier this year). I also have a 42 FT Aluminum Telescopic mast...

    When down to HomeDepot, and got a few parts, and have the driven element (20 Meters) all assembled, tomorrow I will raise up to 36 ft..(Just as a rotatable Dipole). Check VSWR all good! I had one of those common mode chokes and slapped all together...All fun...Next week, I will put the reflector together next weekend..This is most of the fun!

    Cheers

    Awesome!

    Building monoband yagis with fishing poles and wire has been a blast for me.
