Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Portable 2m yagi antenna. Post #695.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/X6FYQc0vyVw.  Here's another great antenna using common materials found at the nearest hardware store or building supply outlet.  In this video, Cody Kaecker assembles a simple, inexpensive, and portable 2 meter antenna out of PVC pipe and steel measuring tapes.  Like the HF dipole antenna described in Post #693, steel measuring tapes are used for the antenna elements and PVC pipe is repurposed for antenna support.  This antenna is useful for transmitter hunts ("fox hunts"), portable use, and emergency operations.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  Thanks for joining us today.
