Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Quick demo of my 2 meter home brew tape measure yagi. Post #502.


A nice quick weekend project from "tmarinos". Tape measure yagi antennas for 2 meters are easy to build, test, and use. These antennas perform remarkably well, considering the material used--some coax, a few connectors, some PVC pipe, and some steel tape measures from the nearest home improvement or neighborhood hardware store. These antennas can be be used for Radio Direction Finding ("foxhunts") or for emergency and portable use.  The antenna described in this video works very well and didn't cost a lot of money.  You may have most of the antenna materials in your shack.
