Quad antennas do very well on VHF and UHF bands. However, the survivability of the antenna corners is limited in areas where severe wind or weather prevails. In this video from Dave Tadlock (KG0ZZ), we see how simple kite or arrow nocks can strengthen the corners of a 2 meter quad and add more life to this versatile antenna. Dave has produced a series of video tutorials on quads for 2 m and 70 cm applications. Each video provides a step-by-step process you can follow to make an effective and sturdy antenna for both home and portable use.
