I've searched around and seen some pretty cruddy sites and other nice ones. Any recommendations on a good site(s) to learn more about building antennas? I have an old TV HF/VHF antenna that I'd like to turn into "a" or "several" yagis, j-poles or something.

thanks.

If you are a member of the ARRL there are several down loadable articles on making VHF yagis out of old TV antennas.

I'll hit the site and sign up tonight! thanks!!!

If I can actually get them to work, I'll make an extra or two if I can.

This month's QST supposedly has a great article on building a 4-element yagi for 2M. Bruce was going to send me the details.

They sell it at the Tattered Cover I'll pick it up today. Thanks for the heads up.
