Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Coat Hanger 2 Meter Yagi Antenna. Post #879.

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser searchbox: Another quick and easy antenna idea from Dave Tadlock (KG0ZZ).  In this video, Dave show us how to build a simple, efficient 2 Meter yagi antenna out of metal coat hangers. You could also use roll up metal rulers sold in hardware stores for the antenna elements.  Your boom could be made from pvc pipe, wood, or bamboo. Just follow Dave's simple instructions and, in no time, you'll have a fully functional yagi that will "hit" those distant repeaters.  This antenna is great for contests and DX hunting.
