Thanks to "Prepping Ohio" for this tutorial on how to build a simple 3-element 2 meter beam antenna. The antenna is vertically polarized, allowing for distant repeat contacts.  Most of the materials are available at the nearest hardware store or building supply outlet.  You may find many of the materials at your own home. The antenna is based on the "classic" Yagi-Uda design from the 1920s and 1930s. ----- For the latest Amateur/Ham Radio news and information, please visit these websites: http://www.HawaiiARRL.info. http://www.arrl.org. http://hamradioupdate.com. http://www.southgatearc.org. https://oahuarrlnews.wordpress.com. https://hamradiohawaii.wordpress.com. https://bigislandarrlnews.com. https://www.eham.net. https://www.blubrry.com/ar

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

If you can't view the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8RVqsdnKow. 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.
