"soccerkicker266" has done an excellent job of building this portable 2 meter yagi antenna based on a design by KD5IVP. This radio amateur took the antenna to the summit of Mr. Adams (12,281 feet/3744.2 meters) and was able to contact a repeater in Pullman, Washington 211 miles/341.8 kilometers away with only 5 watts.  A nice, simple, effective antenna for portable use.
