Tape measure yagi.

Postby BernieM3OCC » Thu Aug 29, 2013 12:50 am

Built myself a 2mtr tape measure yagi tonight, tested the swr through a dummy load and with a couple of minor tweaks got 1.1:1 at 145.500mhz and 1.2:1 at 146.000mhz(I never venture below 145mhz so not tested below that) so pretty pleased but will have to play by listening to local repeaters in the morning. Just for interest I got better results without a choke than I did with one not that it makes any difference for just receiving as I will never transmit on it. :dizzy:
