    Hey folks!

    I just made myself a 2m yagi out of PVC pipe and measuring tape. This is what it looks like:

    I have all the parts ready for another two of them, so all you’d need to do is cut some PVC and do a little soldering. I’m also happy to walk you through it. It’s not difficult. Let me know if you’d like to claim one!

    Nice offer, Gabe. I hope someone takes you up on it. Mike, VCP led groups at Field Day on building these. The first one led to reception of an ISS (Space Station) fly-over. I used one mounted on a mic stand to target repeaters on Skyline from my driveway in San Gregorio. Fun! – Neil


    Laurel and I would love to take you up on the offer. I even have an old tape measure I can donate to the cause.
    We’re on vacation all week, if you have some time available.

    Hey Bob!

    They’re all yours! I am out of town until Jan 3rd. So we can arrange something after that. I should be around that Thu and Fri (and of course Sat & Sun). Let me know if any times in there work for a hand-off.

    No need for another measuring tape, at least not unless you want to make even more of them ;).
