How to build a Yagi Antenna out of a tape measure (HAM Radio)


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ff5sZUkdLac.

Here's a simple, practical, and easy-to-make 2 meter Yagi Antenna made from steel tape measures, a few pieces of wood, and some "odds 'n' ends" laying around your shack.  This type of antenna has gained some popularity by those involved in "fox hunting" (radio direction activity) or mountain top operations, such as SOTA (Summits On The Air).

The video does an excellent job of explaining the steps needed to make this high performance 2 meter antenna.  Make one for your emergency "go-kit" or for that next mini-DXpedition to the nearest campground or public park.  With a little weatherproofing, and a sturdy mast, you could even use this antenna for your home station.
