2 Meter Twin Lead J-pole Antenna. Post#1103.

Here's another simple, inexpensive antenna project from Dave Tadlock (KG0ZZ).  In this video, Dave shows us how to make a 2 Meter roll-up j-pole antenna using ordinary television twin lead.  You can use this antenna for home, portable, or emergency use.  This would make a great back up antenna for the 2017 ARRL Field Day Event.  The gain of this antenna is approximately 3 dB over a 1/4 wavelength 2 Meter vertical antenna.
