Homemade 70cm Yagi Beam Antennas. Post #1108.

Here are two excellent examples of 70 cm Yagi beam antennas made from commonly available materials.  The first antenna is a 7-element beam with a wooden support structure, while the more polished 10-element beam uses aluminum to support the antenna elements.  Both antennas, along with a sturdy rotator atop a small mast, will give you excellent performance between 430-440 MHz (70 cm).  You can cut the antenna elements to conform to the 70 cm allocations in your area.  Video supplied by M0UKD).
