    Building Giant 2m Corner Reflector Antenna

    Building a Giant 2m Corner Reflector Antenna For Less than $200 (For Goes-16, Pulsars and More!)

    I've been chasing more and more complicated radio projects for over a year now and I thought it was finally time to invest in a more serious antenna. But I wanted one that anyone could build, not just one I bought. So I set out to build one as large as possible on the smallest budget.

    Based on a 3d corner reflector design I originally found on http://neutronstar.joataman.net/ the design should be more than capable of picking up everything from satellite transmissions from the geostationary band, moon bounces, and will be very useful for radio astronomy.

    One detail I wanted to clarify was the monopole that acts as the second electrode in the antenna. I talked about it briefly in the video but it isn't actually shown. Nor have I added the coax for connecting to our radio receiver yet. Both pieces will be added in the next video where we take this for a test drive.
