If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B80eDdEEb5M. This is post # 885 in a continuing series on simple ham radio antennas.  In this well-produced video from GUERRILLACOMM, we learn how to assemble the versatile Diamond D 130NJ Discone Antenna, which provides good coverage of the VHF/UHF amateur radio bands and the 800 MHz public service bands.  This antenna can be used to transmit on the 2 meter and 70 cm ham bands.  This antenna is well-made, sturdy, and easy to assemble. You may want to make one yourself or buy the commercial version--either way, you'll have a good general coverage VHF/UHF antenna which can be used as a backup antenna or for general listening.
