Hi,

I was just looking to build a small DIY yagi for recieving telemetry in the 70cm band (434Mhz).  Figured I could probably recycle suitable bits from an old TV aerial or two.  Can't find any at our local Eco Store,  or Trademe, I guess there's not much demand with the switch over to DVB-T.  The local refuse centre is possibly the next option but just wondered if anyone local (Christchurch) had any other suggestions or knew of anyone looking to get rid of theirs?

Cheers,

Dean

Plenty of people haven't removed theirs yet, walk down the street and ask a neighbour if you can remove theirs for them

Good idea Nick, I might have to go a little further afield or try some of the relatives though as we're in a new subdivision so most houses have new DVB-T style aerials.
