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?
