Ham Radio Antenna’s
Prior to even having my Han Radio license KI7OFL, I was in the garage tinkering with antenna’s. In the attic I have a home built 6meter dipole, 2meter Jpole, built a 2meter antenna out of some left over brake tube from my 27 Model T project and assisted KI7LLD in the build of his first antenna. KI7LLD is sitting above Tucson at a nice 3558′, can hit the local EAARS Repeater with ease and has logged a 30 Mile simplex contact on 2-meter on 146.520 – give him a call if you are in the Tucson/Vail area.
Couple of J-Pole links or PDF’s for the build.
