2 meter yagi antenna

Over the weekend, I followed this guide to make a 2 meter tape measure antenna.

Here is what I ended up with:

2 meter tape measure yagi 2 meter tape measure yagi 2

 

The build was fairly simple and the antenna seems to be working okay. I’ve got it hooked directly to a Baofeng UV-5R5 and I’ve been able to pick up a few more repeaters than usual.

I’ve got no way to test the SWR on it at the moment so I don’t know how well it actually works. I guess one of my next projects will be a homebrew swr meter with SMA connectors.
