Hello friends activators I would like to acquire or build an antenna to perform my SOTA activations in the uhf band, vhf I require an antenna that is easy to assemble many suggest the Diamond Antenna A144S5 - 5-element antenna but this is VHF nothing more I want something light.
I think Yuedy is looking for a directional antenna for 2m & 70cm. He’s found one for 2m but it is only for 2m.
If you want to buy one Yuedi, the Arrow antenna gives you 2m and 70cm and being hand held (you could add a bracket) it can be vertical or horizontally polarised. It packs away well when taken apart and it’s what a lot of the satellite operators use. http://www.arrowantennas.com/arrowii/146-437.html
In fact if you search on amateur satellite antennas - you should get a lot of designs that you can build yourself.
I’d strongly recommend the Arrow II - check out the Arrow.com website. Easy to assemble and take down and works very well. Both my 13 year old daughter, KE0WPA, and I have used them on summits with good success.
