Post Stacking Antennas/Power splitter
Bit of a random one here, what is the difference between a 1/4 wave and 1/2 wave power splitter/combiner obliviously they are different lengths but If you were stacking 4 yagi's on 2m lets say what difference would one have over they other,


Thanks

1/4 probably bit easier with vert 4way stack Trevor, coax out at each end I think you could fix the splitter easier to the mast in the middle of the centre pair.
1/2 a bit more fiddly IMHO, but both'd work fine.

I have a 1/4 wave on mine, I do have both but found the 1/4 wave easier to make.
