Tape Measure Yagi Beam Antenna for 2 meters. Post #1536.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: Michael Martens (KB9VBR) has done an excellent job in explaining how to build a simple, inexpensive 3-element yagi beam antenna for the 2 meter Amateur Radio band.  Michael used commonly available materials for this antenna, including some PVC pipe, steel tape measures, electrical tape, and some coaxial cable from his shack.  Michael's demonstration is quick, to-the-point, and easily followed. This antenna can be used for fox hunts (RDF tests), portable operations, and even for public service events which require a directional antenna.  For the latest Amateur/Ham Radio news and information, please visit these websites: (a weekly podcast which is updated each Friday afternoon). https:
