Easy to build, awesome in the field  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I decided to review this antenna because no other T-Hunting equipment has been reviewed on EHam.net as of yet. Perhaps more reviews will find its place here since T-Hunting is becoming more and more popular.

This 3-element 2-meter yagi is a must-have, as far as I'm concerned. It is an excellent tool for both the beginner or the experienced T-Hunter. Built out of only plastic PVC parts and stainless steel tape-measure material, this beam is cheap, light in weight, and offers excellent performance during the transmitter hunt.

Even better! Try walking through vegetation while sniffing out a transmitter with your alumninum yagi -- you'll end up with lots of bent elements. Because of this beam's elements (made out of tape-measure material), they fold and bend, then bounce right back into position!

Consider building this weekend project, and you'll have a simple yagi that is as good as any other 3-element direction finding antenna. Enjoy, and good hunting!
