Complete. Almost. I still want to find/build a dome/box to protect each biquad array. As long as I'm careful though they are pretty stiff as is and the spacing from the reflector is consistent. I may add some bracing for added insurance if nothing else.

Galvanized 26ga sheet metal from Lowes
12ga solid copper core wire from Lowes (a bit thick but I wanted it stiff)
Steel compression pins for the standoffs from Lowes (only thing I could find that fit the RG58 cable snug and was solderable)
RG58 SMA cables from Ebay.
And a bit of plywood I had laying around the shop

We'll see how she works this weekend. Although I'll still be limited to only about 2 miles by my radio.
