Tape Measure Yagi Antennas
Bob Witte, K0NR <list@...>
14er Event List:
Greg KC0ADT and Eric KC0CAV both provided me with some info
on Yagi antennas that are built using tape measure material for
the elements....so they can roll up easily. This makes for a
very compact and portable antenna.
You might consider building one for the 14er event.
Take a look at the two URLs below.
It is not my idea, but it is a great one. Here is the web site.
I like the fact that there is no long piece of metal to attract
lightening. I roll the tape elements and secure them for transport. It
works well, although perhaps not as well as an Arrow Antenna. Size and
weight in a pack are excellent. I now carry it on all hikes.

Thanks, that's a good one for hiking.
Well, we will not be going out of state for any reason this summer (racing or
Jeff's next launch). We have been cutting low hanging tree limbs and cleaning
out ground cover. Last week was kind of an awakening event though not very
I did work the evacuation school near here and listened in on Forrest Service
And now we have snow.
Still plan to make 14er on Bross.
