polarization project antenna

A real good Antenna would be a 2 meter Quad, and a 70cm quad both will work well. For 2 meter quad use a 21-1/4" element length that is 5.28" per side. This is the reflector on a 1/2 diam. boom. The Driven element will be 20 1/2" (5.125)" and the director 1 will be 5.031" and director 2 will be 5.031" per each side. The length of the boom will depend of the tightness of the beam received and transmit pattern . Typical length would be 4 to 6 feet. You can adjust the spacing as to your desire. And the Same principle for 70 cm . Put them up once to tested them with the Antenna analyzer.
