Its All In The Matching
Gamma Match mounted to the driven element of the 3 element yagi.
The photo shows this assembly seperated from the boom assembly of the antenna. The end of the driven element has not yet been modified from its tent pole beginnings to become part of the antenna. In back packing tents, these male and female segments are held together with shock-cords. As you will see as I progress, I will modify the aluminum sections to screw together with a double start thread, allowing for quick assembly of the antenna.
