Does anyone have a link to drawings and build instructions for a 2m tape measure yagi? i have searched all over the net and cannot find anything about it, but have seen them at hamfests. it was supported by pvc and the element and reflectors were made from a tape measure. This will be my first homebrew antenna so ill need some detailed instructions.
Thanks in advance. 73s KG4LMR

I have built several of those. They work great - approx. 7-8 db of gain. Very easy to work satellites, too. I have done a few mods from those plans that you have. Please feel free to email or PM me if you want any tips.
