Even in times of poor propagation, the 6 meter amateur radio band can still produce interesting contacts--often at surprising distances. In this video from K1GMM, we learn how to build a 3-element 6 meter yagi that can deliver approximately 9.4 dBi gain. According to K1GMM, all of the parts can be obtained for around $60 from a well-stocked home improvement outlet or hardware store. The antenna can be broken down easily for portable or emergency operations.
