Parts suitable for use with G4CQM's Antennas (Homebrew Yagi Projects) are manufactured and sold by long established and trusted R.W. Badland Ltd who are located in the West Midlands United Kingdom. They include the following components as seen in pictures below...
1. Element mounting clip
2. Dipole centre
3. Mounting bracket
When tested in a microwave oven Badland's durable and weather resistant moldings remain cool to touch, absorbing minimal RF energy! Even so, these particular element mountings do require boom correction when used at 144MHz and above, please refer to Construction page for guidance!
Matching plastic end plugs for the 1 Inch square booms are also available.
End Caps... Do not use plastic, vinyl, or rubber end caps on any of the elements (reflector, driven and directors), these will affect tuning and make wet weather performance worse!
Stainless steel hardware must be sought elsewhere...
