Abstract: We present a geometrical model for the interpretation of the Mkn 501 spectral energy distribution (SED) variations. It is shown how a helical jet with a steady emission can explain the SEDs constructed with simultaneous data taken when the source was in different brightness states: in particular, it can account fairly well for the exceptionally high X-ray luminosity state recently detected by the BeppoSAX satellite.
