Got my 3ele LFA Yagi up

Postby VK2GOM » Tue Feb 09, 2010 12:49 pm

It's a bit of a lash up as far as the 5.5m mast goes - I used a Bunnings ground screw for the bottom end to sit in, and the other point is attached with the same aluminium bar I use to support the mast against my 4x4 roof bars, only this time to the washing line. Rotation remains the run-downstairs-armstrong-method :roll:

I think I'll only be able to put the antenna up when there is any 6m action. Other times, it will have to come down and lay in the yard. I wouldn't trust the mast arrangement in any sort of wind.

On the upside, Justin G0KSC's dimensions worked out spot on, and the SWR hardly moves my meter between 50.00 and 50.300MHz.
