Experimental Tri Band yagi for 14/21/28 MHz Bands
OptiYagi Tubes+Wire TriBander 14/21/28 (3 el for 28 MHz)
New antenna (Jule 2016) FiveBander 14-18-21-24-28 MHz

My Yagi Antenna Construction with Elevation for EME
You can use very easy Manual Rotator Control for Azimut or Elevation for DC motor
In my new QTH (2004 year) i made very simple and very cheap antenna (for joke has been spend 2 $ for making antenna) for 2 Band -144+432 MHz
You can download antFM.zip : contructions , SWR , MMANA file model. Many Ham use this antenna in Russia and Ukraine with good result for local and Tropo QSO . Easy constructions and good gain : 2,8 dbd in 2 meter band and 5,2 dbd in 70 cm band. I used this antenna for SAT QSO via VO52 with good result .
UB9MAR Alexander has sent me photo his realisation of this antenna and Hams from 22dx.ru forum
UR7HJR made 4xDipole antennas with simply impedance matching (look RADIO 03/2009)
Dual band FeedHorn for 1296 and 5760 MHz
Ham`s who work on SHF band from field condition or with small setup know many reason to have a multiband antenna system. Dish is very effective antennas for 23 cm band and above. Many Ham`s use one dish for some bands by change feed horn or antenna module. For example i also use two changing modules of 6 and 3 cm band for small offset TV SAT dish .
DL4EMA Guenter made loop feed of 23 cm band for prime focuse dish and RA3AQ Dmitrij  made some different design of loop and diameter of reflector.
1. Parabolic Dish Ring Feed (1998) DL4MEA http://www.qsl.net/dl4mea/ringfeed.htm
The main advantage of a loop feed is very simple mechanical
configuration and good performance of antenna system for Field days
and QSO by TROPO propogation.
Measured radiation pattern
Victor UA9YLU made this Dual Band Horn for his Dish SVEC 1,8 m . He got ratio Noise from Sun / Cold Sky - 7 db for 1296 MHz and 4,5 db for 5760 MHz
Vladimir R3GC made this Dual Horn. He used saucepan for reflector of element 1296 MHz.
Alexander UA3OW made this Dual Band Horn.
