    Does anyone have a link to or plans for a 70cm Tape Measure Yagi? I want to make a 70cm to match my 2m Tape Measure yagi so I can use my secondary HT to make it easier to work SO-50.


    Since the 2m Yagi can receive SO-50 I know I could just make a second 2m version, but I figured I could use the 70cm version to work 440 on some SOTA work.


    Thanks

    On the ANTENNAS page at ...

    http://www.work-sat.com

    ... you will find W6NBC's article from the January, 2012 issue of QST magazine - that has the measurements for the 440 elements for you.

    And Doug KD5PDN has written a great article on working the ISS with just an HT and tape measure beam! It’s in the Feb. 2012 issue of QST magazine - or you can go to the SAT SKEDS page of that same Web site for a copy.

    I've actually found once I tuned mine up, it was pretty darn happy and content on 70cm too...
    Even then, not too difficult to use the same plans and trim the elements down a bit...

    Thanks for pointing that out though :)
