Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Slot antenna parabolic dish based 2m 440. Post #699.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https//youtu.be/I144kzJxzDA.  How would you like to build a stealthy 2m/70 cm stealth antenna by using the ubiquitous satellite receiving dish?  Thanks to James Sanders (AG6IF), you can convert that unneeded or extra satellite dish into something more useful without incurring the ire of noisy neighbors--namely, a totally disguised antenna for VHF/UHF antenna.  Jim cut a 40 inch/110.60 cm slot within a parabolic dish fed with a SO-239 jumper about 4.5 inches/11.43 cm from the end of the slot.  The antenna is vertically polarized and should be able to work repeaters in your neighborhood. A nice, simple, cheap, and largely invisible VHF/UHF antenna for HOA/CC&R situations. For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.
