Simple Ham Radio Antennas--A 2 m dipole made from a telescoping TV antenna. Post #506.


A beautiful, simple 2 meter dipole antenna made from an indoor "bunny" (rabbit) ears TV antenna.  Nicely done video from VK3YE.  Just adjust the telescoping antenna elements to the proper length for your chosen 2 meter frequency, attach a short length of 50-ohm coaxial cable, and hook up your 2 meter HT with a simple adapter. This modified antenna would be perfect for portable or emergency use.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  You can follow our blog community with a free e-mail subscription or by tapping into the blog RSS feed.
