Traffie Technologies, the Massachusetts-based family business that has pioneered and manufactured the HEX-BEAM line of compact rotatable wire beams, is closing its doors.
“This is to inform everyone that we are closing down production of the HEX-BEAM®,” an announcement on the HEX-BEAM website said. The company’s principal, Mike Traffie, N1HXA, has indicated that he is open to having someone else take over the business.
The small firm came into being in 1992, and HEX-BEAM antennas have been developed for 40 meters through 2 meters in various monoband and multiband versions. The company’s latest product is the HX5Bi, which covers 10, 12, 15, 17 and 20 meters.
