Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Roll Up Slim Jim Antenna for Emergency & Preparedness Communication Review


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=196-sS2yYak. This is post #927 in a continuing series of articles on simple ham radio antennas.  Here is a simple, portable "Slim Jim" antenna for the 2m and 70cm amateur radio bands. W2NTC reviews this effective, efficient VHF/UHF antenna from Nelson Antennas and shows how it can be deployed both indoors and outdoors.  You should keep one of these antennas in your vehicle or ham shack for portable or emergency use.  Those living in HOA or CC&R-controlled housing will find this antenna useful, unobtrusive, and "stealthy."
