4m/6m yagi - some progress 2

Todays progress building the antenna is small. Had other things to do...

Reflectors, 6m dipole/inductive 4m dipole and directors are mounted. I was a little worried since the first 4m director is longer as the inductive 4m dipole. But it seems it is all right, it's the design of this antenna.

I use straight new tubes. Exactly the same clamps, still the elements are not in line with each other. I'm puzzled why this is?
Boom is square! Benefit of a round boom is that alignment is simple. I don't know the best way to align elements on a square boom.

Almost forgot....this are our tomatoes. Growing fast...

  1. Hello Bas, the elements look square enough to not affect performance. Is that a solar panel on your roof?

    1. John, I managed to get everything even. It is good enough now. Yes it is a solar panel see: https://pe4bas.blogspot.com/2012/12/solar-power-experiments.html

      Already there since 2012. Have been using it to supply the autotuner with 12V. 73, Bas
