I'm still trying to put together a material list for the upcoming antenna
I have heard of guys using 4" by .375" rectangular aluminum stock to use
as boom to element stock on Yagis.
Standard procedure is to secure these to the boom with four U-bolts. I
assume the U-bolts are laid out parallel to each other on the stock going
from front to back along the boom. I also assume the elements are held to the
stock by smaller U-bolts. What size U-bolts have you guys used on the 3
inch boom bolts and what size have you used on the element to plate
mounts...5/16, 3/8? Also, are they mounted M2 style, with the elements above
boom? Or are they mounted Cushcraft style, with the elements mounted below
Does anyone have any pictures of such homebrew mounting? A picture is
worth a thousand words.
Thanks for the help.
