Due to a massive increase in material and shipping costs, it is sadly not longer possible to absorb the increase of costs on your end. As of 28 April 2022 the prices are as follows:
ALL ABOUT DX hexagonal beam aka “The Hex”: A$ 1279.
(ca. US$ 910, 863 EUR, GBP 726).
That includes all six bands, Kevlar chords, anodised aluminium centre post and StarHub and UV protected, hand painted spreaders.
The QRO choke balun is optional (you may already have one or you want to build your own) and is also made in house. The costs are A$149 (ca. US$111, 95 EUR, GBP81).
We use PTFE (aka Teflon) coax and two high quality Amphenol SO-239.
The balun and the hex can handle full legal power in VK and has been tested with a CW (100% duty cycle) signal of 400W for 60 sec.
Additional anodising of the remaining aluminium components such as StarHub spreader tubes or stub mast is possible and recommended to obtain a better corrosion resistance. This is particularly important when living close to the coast. The current costs for the full anodising package are $109.
As with all manufacturers, you may need to pay tax. If we ship to an address within the Commonwealth of Australia, GST of 10% will apply. If we ship overseas, local tax and duties may apply (depending on tax and other regulations in your country).
Shipping costs may vary too depending on your location. (Please send us an inquiry so we can check what the best option for you is.)

Due to world wide supply chain issues we are currently experiencing long lead times for some components, particularly for fibreglass tubes. As our tubes are custom made, we have to join a long queue and have to be patient. We are also in the process of building a brand new home which will include a shed exclusively to be used by ALL ABOUT DX.
We expect the new HQ to be finished around mid 2022.
