A selection of photos of equipment and antennae built rather than just bought…
The folded dipole assembly for my most recently built portable 432MHz Yagi.
And a view of 432MHz folded dipole, from the other side…
One of the four new 14-element Yagi for 144MHz, having the dipole assembly fitted.
Views of the original folded dipole-mounting block – Teflon and aluminium, with stainless steel fasteners. These photos remain here to remind me what not to do next time! The large slab of aluminium angle creates unwanted capacitance across the feed-point. All the mounts have now been modified by cutting along the line shown, thus removing about 80% of the plate.
