Simple Ham Radio Antennas: 2m Ladder Line J Pole. Post #389.


If you have difficulty viewing the video, please enter the title link in your browser (https://youtu.be/n0eYB5AWGvY). Here's nice, easy 2 meter J-Pole antenna made from 60 inches to 61 inches (152.4 cm to 154.9 cm) of 450 ohm Ladder Line. The instructional video from KD0RVY is clear and easy to follow. All you need to complete the project is some king of mast or pole to support the J-Pole. You should get about 3dB gain over a simple 2 meter vertical. I've built a few of these antennas for portable and emergency operations. I find a simple MFJ 2 meter "tuner" helpful in some cases. This would make an excellent club project. Make a few of these simple 2 meter antennas, one for your radio room and the other for your vehicle. For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.
