Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Tuning a CB Whip for use on the 10 Meter Ham Band. Post #803.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3Oho0lcbis.  In this video, Tony (KD8RTT) and his brother Andy (KK4LWR) show us how to convert an old CB mobile antenna into a mobile Amateur Radio antenna.  You can probably find a lot of old CB antennas are moving and garage sales, so you may be able to get one of this antennas for a cheap price.  I've converted several 102 inch/259.02 cm CB whips into very inexpensive 10 meter ground plane antennas for my shack.  My cost was free, since I got them from a garage sale and the owner just wanted to get rid of them.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are update daily.
