Model Tower 2
I had a go at making a slightly different mini tower and yagi out of TIG welding wire and this is what I came up with.



The tower is two sections with a six element yagi antenna that can be rotated 360ยบ simply by hand. The model is made by myself from 3.2mm TIG welding wire which has been built using the MIG welding process. As usual it was fun making it and there is no doubt that I will be fettling up some other project soon. Hope you like it!

    Hi Simon, nice work ! Why not making a small actual 70cm yagi to put on top of that tower HI ?
    Keep up the good work,

    Tnx Thomas and I agree it would be cool with an actual workable 70cms antenna. maybe a 2 element quad would be nice? I will give it a go sometime.

    Thanks again and best 73

    You could take an eye out with that. You could proably get a 16 element beam for 23cms on there too.
