Ham Radio - The simple coax cable emergency prepper antenna. Post 1762.

If you need a quick emergency VHF/UHF antenna requiring a minimum of tools and effort, then this video from Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) is for you.  All you need is a tape measure, some cutting tools, a length of RG-6 television coax cable, a few "F" to BNC connectors, and some imagination to make a fully usable antenna for 2 m and 70 cm.  You may want to make one of these antennas for your emergency "go-kit" or for a spare in case your regular VHF/UHF antenna fails.  A nicely done video with plenty of good suggestions.
