Home brewed 3 element yagi Antenna. Post 1872.


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

A wonderfully conceived, if somewhat flawed, idea for a 3-element VHF yagi antenna made from easily found objects around Marcial Grey's home.  Marcial does a good job of showing how he used some old aluminum tubing from a discarded television antenna, a bamboo stick, some inexpensive RG-58 coaxial cable, and a spare PL-259 to make this simple VHF yagi.  Marcial says he was able to access a repeater 25 miles/40.5 km from his home.

The only weak spot in this video is the uneven quality of the video itself.  The idea is basically sound, and you should be able to get a lot of information from Marcial's effort.
