GTV 23-34w  Yagi with bent Driven Element



A long 23 cm Yagi that provides a very clean pattern and almost 19 dBi of gain.
This is the scaled version of the 70 cm band YBN 70-25m. Design date of issue: 2020.12.29




ZS6JON built GTV 23-24w at Ronald, ZS6RVC


GTV 23-34w trimming test in ZS6JON's garden:

GTV23-34w Driver Cell (ZS6JON). Blade Dipole from brass fitted into slotted ⌀ 5 mm mid section pieces.
