In the previous article, we discussed how to calculate and build a simple Yagi-Uda antenna.
Now it’s time to play with this antenna and receive some interesting signals.
This will be mostly video post. I filmed all experiments and created brief videos.
Hope they gonna be interesting, video is in Russian, but English subtitles are also available.
As the receiver, I’ll use a popular rtl-sdr receiver
Software – GQRX on Linux mint.
First tests of the antenna.
