Best way to pass lines through the garage wall? KJ6CBP on 25/4/19
It would help ,to know the type of construction of the building... concrete block, wood frame etc. .But I do know they make PL-259 Female-Female extensions(many lengths), just for wall transfers. Check ARRL vendors (like MFJ, and others), for some choices. Good luck, 73

I would like to hear if the location (In-line or 90 Degrees), and length make a difference for a 2 Meter Yagi antenna.

Does adding more director elements(same length), and keeping the same spacing between the elements, make more Db gain? What type of Formula do you use to calculate, the length/number of elements to see a benefit?

I spent the day trying different things, and found using 75 Ohm Video Coax dropped the SWR's from 2.4+ (RG-58) to 1.2 !! Runs good SWR's thru the whole Band. I might just be done testing things, this is all I need for my uses. THANKS JOHN, for another GREAT Antenna!

I can't give a full report...yet, But this antenna is turning into "FRANKNTENNA". I've made some mods (I will tell more when finished), But I'm still liking this as a portable trip/field antenna. I can hit Repeaters 37 Miles away (MFJ-1918ex 10' stand, Cheap RG58 coax, and a 4 Watt Baofeng UV5-R). Not bad for a start....more to come
