Tape Measure Antenna

Workshop Build-A-Thon

(project completed January 7, 2023)

We built them, now what? There are many times you may want a collapsible, directional antenna:

  • You live in an apartment building and need extra gain to reach the repeater or another station
  • You need a directional antenna to track down noise on your radio
  • You are going on vacation and may need extra gain to reach a faraway repeater
  • You want to work the satellites or download SSTV pictures from ISS
  • They’re just plain fun to mess around with, and
  • You wish to participate in the MRAC fox hunt (more on that to come)
