Hiking Pole Yagi Antenna

I wanted to share a recent project that I just completed.
Like many of you, I am always looking to reduce weigh while hiking.
I came up with the idea of 3D printing element mounts that attach to my hiking pole.
I then used my Arrow antenna for the elements, including cutting them in half so they would pack smaller.

This might be the catalyst for me to enter the 3D printing world.

Do it! I’m printing a case for my nanoVNA as we speak. You wouldn’t believe the amount of things
you can print with a 3D printer. Download a copy of Fusion 360 and get at it!
