Hello Everyone,
This month we will be building some tape measure yagis and learning a little bit about ARDF (Amateur Radio Direction Finding). If you want to build an antenna, the part you need are listed below. If you don't want to build one, come on out anyway and learn about yagi antennas and ARDF.

Three feet of 1/2″ schedule 40 PVC pipe.

Two, 1/2″ schedule 40 PVC crosses
One, 1/2″ schedule 40 PVC Tee
Six, hose clamps large enough to fit over the PVC tee and crosses.
One, tape measure 1″ wide and 10 feet long, we will be cutting this up so use a broken one or find a cheap measure.
A couple of feet of RG-8x or equivalent with one PL259 connector.
Electrical tape or heat shrink to cover the ends of the tape measure.
