If you want a simple, cheap, effective, and fun-to-build 3 element yagi for the 2 meter band, then this video from Darin Boehrnsen (KF7TOV) is for you.

This homebrew 2 meter antenna uses materials easily bought from the nearest hardware or home improvement outlet, including some steel tape measures, a few pieces of PVC pipe, plastic pieces, and nuts, bolts, and screws from your junk box.  These antennas are great for portable and emergency use as well as for RDF (radio direction finding) contests and events.  Make one of these antennas for your emergency "go kit" and store it in your vehicle.  An excellent club project!
