MOXON ANTENNA: Invented by Les Moxon G6XN (SK 2004), is sort of a two element yagi with the elements folded and spaced to eliminate the need for an impedance match.
A carefully optimized and constructed moxon can easily exceed the gain and bandwidth of a sloppily designed and constructed yagi. Also, the moxon is smaller than the typical yagi and much smaller than the typical J-pole antenna.
The Gain is typically 7-14 dBi, depending on accuracy of construction. Although this is a directional high gain antenna, it has a very large aperture with a high front to back ratio. If pointed directly up, this can make a decent satellite antenna.
Lawn Chair parts for the antenna.
Corners from lawn chair with wood separators, one screw is good to hold it together.
Almost an antenna.
Make both sides the same, connect the coax and have some fun
THIS ANTENNA WORKED BETTER THAN EXPECTED, Had fun making this antenna, the Moxon Calculator can be found on line, making measurements easy.
HAVE FUN AT THE NEXT QSY MEETING. WA2WMJ JB
