R&D Report 1987-13 : Band II VHF antenna for home construction. S. Wakeling A wideband Band II Yagi antenna, suitable for home construction, has been designed using computer techniques. The antenna is intended for use as a domestic receiving antenna for VHF/FM sound broadcasting at frequencies in the range 88 to 108 MHz. Scale-model antennas were constructed and measured to verify the performance predicted by the computer. Finally, a full-scale Yagi antenna was constructed and its radiation patterns measured. The measurements on the new antenna and on some commercially made antennas, which all had performances inferior to the new antenna, throw doubt upon the practicability or usefulness of the directivity characteristic in CCIR Recommendation 599.
