How to build a three element beam for 2 meters. Post #1649.

Here's a very simple and effective 3-element yagi for the 2 meter amateur radio band.  According to the video's author, "Prepping Ohio", most of the parts were found in or around his home.  Using scrap lumber, some stiff wire, and a spare tube to support the antenna, he was able to make several contacts using about 1 watt of power.  The antenna is vertically polarized and works well for contacting mobile stations.
