Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Build a Portable 10 Meter Yagi Antenna. Post #421.


A nicely built 2-element 10 meter yagi antenna for field day or for portable use. Dave Tadlock (KG0ZZ) does his usually good job in explaning the theory behind the antenna, the kind of materials needed for construction, and how to use the antenna to your best advantage. Dave says it's also possible to build the yagi out of pvc pipe and wire, "but the pvc pipe will need a 1" x 8' wood dowel or 'closet pole' for a stiffener." Good luck in this upcoming Field Day during the last full weekend of June. I'll have more Field Day antenna suggestions in forthcoming posts. There's nothing quite as satisfying as building your own antenna and seeing it "do its stuff." For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.
