If you've ever wanted to build an inexpensive, sturdy, and simple antenna for the 6 Meter Amateur Radio Band, then this video is for you.  Most of the parts can be found around your shack, at garage sales. and in the bins at your nearest home improvement or hardware store.  "Dafrogtoad" takes you step-by-step in converting an old VHF/UHF television antenna into a fully functioning 6 Meter Dipole Antenna--a great project that will save money and deliver good performance on "The Magic Band."
