This small and extremely light antenna has surprising gain for its size and may be suitable for those without the real estate or pocket for a huge Yagi. It could be mounted in most loft spaces and still rotated easily, but was designed for mounting on a lightweight mast such as the popular SOTA pole. The SOTA pole is really a fishing pole and is also known in the UK as a ‘Roach pole’ or in other parts of the world as a ‘Squid pole’. My design as it stands needs some refining for my purposes as I will describe later but it works very well.
