Ham Radio at Make Lehigh Valley

The Lehigh Valley Amateur Radio Club stopped by for a visit on Saturday, Jan. 18, which sounded like a great excuse for us to make stuff! So we gathered some materials and got to work building yagi antennas out of tape measures and PVC pipe.

We used the plans available at http://theleggios.net/wb2hol/projects/rdf/tape_bm.htm and it looks like they work great! 1.1 on the SWR meter is pretty darn good for a homemade antenna.

Interested in bringing your club to Make Lehigh Valley, or got an idea for an activity? Get in touch and we’ll make something happen! Send mail to info@makelehighvalley.com
