Via Southgate News and MAKE magazine news of a collapsible fabric yagi antenna developed by Diana Eng KC2UHB who has combined two craft skills in a stylish way, electronics and sewing. It’s a design for a Yagi for portable amateur radio satellite operation.
Her MAKE magazine article is well-written, comprehensive and brilliantly illustrated.
Diana Eng has also written an earlier article aimed at newcomers to amateur satellites for MAKE that covers:
- Finding out when to listen
- Finding the frequency
- Aiming a whip antenna
- Following the pass with the antenna
- Tuning the radio for the Doppler effect
Check the size of the antenna in that earlier piece and you’ll understand why she aimed at something more portable!
