Build a Portable 10 Meter Yagi Antenna. Post #1379.

Here's a simple, inexpensive, and efficient 2-element 10 meter yagi you can build in time for the Winter Field Day exercise (27-28 January 2018) or for the regular summer ARRL Field Day event during the last full weekend in June.

Dave (KG0ZZ) takes you step-by-step through the design, construction, and operational phases of this 10 meter yagi antenna which can be used for both home and portable operations.  A lightweight mast and rotor will round out the project.  This would make a great club project for newly licensed Technician Class radio amateurs.  Techs have a good slice of the 10 meter band, and given decent propagation, they could experience the DX thrills many of us get during a contest.
