    Base lightning antennas l4+ quad

    Hey team I realize this is an old thread and would like a bit of feed back. I have a 6 element lightning quad. The brass stubs had broken.

    11 meter 4 element yagi 1.5 SWR with no matching system. I just finished putting this together. I thought all Yagis would have to have a matching system.
