it appears his young, nimble fingers had a bit of trouble as well :)
...impressive work though!
another fabric theme for a portable yagi can be found at
...at least this one won't fly off like a kite! probably cheaper as well,
owever, both are really cool designs!

retty darn ingeneous packaging! Hams, unlike university students, all have fat
ingers and would struggle to extract that 3-part antenna boom. I like the
abric roll-up concept, but wonder if it would present wind-load problems in a
eal-world field application?

liked the fold away yagi antenna in this video of the OSSI ground station.
