Ever since I got licensed I always wanted to try Satellite Communications. So after looking through one of my favorite websites (HackADay.Com) I saw an article on how to build a Yagi antenna using some screws pvc pipe and aluminum arrows. This peaked my interest in Satellite communications. I’ve been aware of the commerical antennas built for this purpose and I am also aware of some of the DIY antennas. All I have for a radio is a handheld Kenwood TH-78A that I will be using and I plan on mounting the antenna on a old tripod.
Hopefully I can have this built before my daughter arrives. But either way it’s going to be a fun simple project.
