Arrow Antenna

Today Dad brought home a Yagi directional antenna from Hank (kh6hak) which I get to borrow. A Yagi antenna is a directional beam antenna. There are three parts to a Yagi antenna, the reflector, radiator, and directors. The more directional parts there are on the antenna the more powerful it is in that direction, but less powerful in any other direction. This antenna will hopefully maximize my range for my project.

I think I had one of those on my bike once. It was quite the holiday gift. Went outside on my bike put the reflector on and began to ride at night.
