Field Day Prep—Antenna Party—Antenna Dimensions

We had a great antenna party today to fix up the Yagis we’ll be using at Field Day. There was only one copy of the dimensions, so by request I scanned and tweaked the precious hand-written papers, did some digital adjustments to bring out the faint pencil scratchings, and converted it all to a PDF. Royce, AAØJD, is adamant that these dimensions will work well only at our Field Day site, which was carefully modeled. So, there’s no harm in letting everyone else know what they are. I’ve attached a PDF file with the data, which you can reach by clicking here. PLEASE NOTE that this document is large—nearly 10MB—so it may take awhile to download depending on your Internet connection.

I took lots of video during the antenna party and hope to post it soon.
