Simple Ham Radio Antennas--2m Backpack Quad Antenna Follow Up. Post #669.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this address into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/FwXq1XkhHU.  This video is part two of Dave Tadlock's (KG0ZZ) 2 meter Backpack Quad Antenna project. In this well-done and easy-to-follow presentation, Dave adds some special features that will increase the efficiency and directivity of this simple quad antenna.  Dave adds two parasitic elements (a reflector and a director) to the driven element to get more gain and directivity from the antenna.  Dave supplies all of the necessary forumulas and design advice needed to cut the wire and assemble this 3-element quad for the 2 meter band.  This antenna can be used for portable, emergency, or at home use. Good luck!  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars. These news feeds are updated daily.
