They do say that a picture says a
thousand words - so who am I to argue !!
First Row - Last section going up
Second Row - 70 cms Yagi's
Third Row - 2m Yagi
Paul (VE3EU) and I were at it
by about 8am this morning. By about 2pm we had everything up
apart from the feed line. I picked that up later on and had
my first QSO at 5:07 PM on the new system.
Now what we have ended up with
2 x 15 element yagis side by
side on 70cms, fed with 7/8" coax at about 55 ft.
16 element yagi on 2m fed with 1/2" coax at about 50 ft.
special thanks goes to Paul VE3EU for all of the material and
work he contributed to this effort. Without his help this
would have been a considerably harder project.
