Hi Bill,

for a homemade "Elk" style log-perodic antenna covering both the 2m and 70cm
bands see this homemade antenna (with bilingual instructions in German and
English) link:


The text above is mostly self explaining and very simple and cheap to
construct with some basic tools on hand.

This antenna is slightly larger than the Elk (15 inch longer boom length)
which results even in a higher gain then the original Elk design. Maybe this
gives some desired extra punch for eventual indoor operation.

Good luck,

Oscar DJ0MY
