Charlie Tango DX is a group dedicated to Hobby Radio Users in all forms, whether CB, Amateur, PMR446, Scanning and Short Wave Listening.
We are a very active and friendly group that welcomes anyone from anywhere in the world who has an interest in Radio, regardless of their level of experience, their equipment, their location, or their radio preference. We have members varying from fully qualified operators on the Amateur Bands, to newcomers who have just bought a PMR446 set, and many CBers both old and new. All are equal on the Site.

The CT Site contains many reviews, tips and modifications within the forums, and we take pride that no sensible question is ever left unanswered, and nobody is ever belittled or mocked for asking an honest question, no matter how simple it may seem. We were all new to the hobby once.

Hi guys, I've found some designs for 2m/70cm yagi's and was wondering what materials you generally use to make these? I've got plastic pipe and welding rods in my head?

That will certainly do the job as long as the boom length isn’t too great. Lots of people make up lightweight Yagis for portable ops in that way.

Have a look at the DK7JB direct feed designs. Sandpiper antennas do good ally tubing and square section or Wickes have a rack full of useful ally. If your putting them up to stay up use decent quality metal and stainless fasteners.
