Simple Ham Radio Antennas--8 Element Log Periodic Yagi(Home Brew). Post #753.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/3mj2n-HOP2g. A great video showing a father (VK2FJC) and his son, Corey (VK2FCOR) making and testing a homebrew 8 element log periodic dipole array.  Corey and his dad salvaged parts from 2 ANT, 4 element 20 meter antennas to make this homebrewed antenna. This video shows the pair testing the newly constructed antenna with a Rigexpert AA-520 antenna analyzer.  The analyzer is doing a sweep from 14 MHz to 30 MHz.  Log periodic antennas are a bit large and heavy for the HF bands, but many radio amateurs have managed to make a few with outstanding results.  Log periodic antennas are also used on VHF and UHF segments of the radio spectrum.
