The Ubiquitous Tape Measure Yagi

As the weather in North Dakota warms, we start to have a desire for outdoor activities. Starting on this beautiful Easter Sunday, Amateur Radio Direction Finding activities start to ramp up for the club.

While body shielding still reigns as the top ARDF strategy for newcomers to the activity, upgrading to a dedicated antenna more suited to the task does not have to be an expensive proposition.

The link given below leads to the exact same design and page that I used to create my first ARDF Yagi beam. I have performed maintenance, rebuilds, and upgrades over the years, though the main boom of the beam still has my original callsign ground into the PVC.

Give the following link a read to see how easy and inexpensive it can be to build your own ARDF antenna.
