If you can't view the video, please insert this title link into your browser searchbox: This is post #959 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas. Exceptionally well-produced, clearly explained, and easy to follow tutorial from "Swizzradios" (HB9CV).  This antenna was made from an old 27 MHz (CB) 1/4 wavelength ground plane antenna from LEM.  The gamma match is made from a mobile antenna socket with a 3/8 inch/0.95 cm hy-gain rod.  Directors are made of six shortened pieces of the old CB antenna.  The boom is made of 2 X 2 cm/1 inch (approximately) aluminum tubing.  This antenna would make a nice weekend project for you or your club.
