After trying out some different types of antennas
I was still looking for an cobined 2m/70cm antenna with enough gain
on both bands for handheld operation.
Therefor and because Arrow antennas are not sold in Europe I decided
to build my
own one based on the great "ultralight"designs
The material cost me less than 20€ so its very affordable for the
great result of the antenna.
The construction with electric PVC pipes and clips is very interesting
and permits for ex. only mointing 70cm , 2m or both on the boom. The plans of the 4el.
2m and 7el.
70cm antennas can be found on DK7ZB's
Here some pictures:
fasciliting storage but not usable like this - all elements in one plane
Construction details - the marks on the boom
The proud owner :-)
The 70cm part laying on the roof of my car , for 2m the FT-7800
inside car was used to hit the satellite.
