Thanks to our late December windstorms, I will soon have the opportunity
to kill the 14MHz resonance of my 40M yagi boom. I expect the
two easiest methods would be to make it longer with extensions
(which would be pretty easy and cheap) or shorter by breaking it up with
Making it shorter by breaking up the (3 inch) boom appeals to me
the most but I am not sure what kind of materials would be appropriate
(for strength, weight, ultra-violet resistance, availability, and cost).
materials mentioned on this forum before but can't find the references.
This is also complicated by the fact the yagi sits in a Tic Ring Cradle so
of any non-conducting boom material could be significant if I broke the boom
in the middle. However, I could break the two ends up.
Just putting out a straw man at this point.
