Step 1: What's Needed:
Couple feet of tape if that.
15 inches of copper wire
Step 2: Directors and Reflectors.
Need to cut longways 7, 6.75, and 6.5 inches for the directors.
Take each sheet of foil and fold in half till about 1/4 inch thick or as much as you can fold them.
Step 3: Base.
Fold in half just to get a crease soyou know where the center is. (if not foldable, use a ruler to mark a center line.)
Step 4: Driven Element.
(If you do not have access to copper wiring, you could use a folded up folded of piece of foil as a secondary substitute.)
Take the wire and at the 9.5 inch point fold it around a finger into a sort of u-turn.
The remaining length should be 5 inches.
Step 5: Mounting of Directors and Reflectors..
Make sure they are equal length on both sides of the crease. Tape them down as you place each one properly.
Step 6: Mounting the Element.
At the centerline either glue or tape down two small pieces of Styrofoam (or light wood cubes) to hold the loop upright.
