I have been active on 144 MHz EME during two periods. The first period was from 1993 to 1995. At that time, I built 4 15 element antennas, each approximately 8 meters long in a large "H" frame.
In 1997 I decided to build a larger system, this time it was 8 15 element yagi's mounted in a "double H" frame. Unfortunately, the array was taken by a very furious storm in December 1999 with winds peaking to 100 mph ! The
Az/El Mount was completely destroyed, as well as most of the antennas and feed system
