The Arrow OSJ144/440 J-Pole antenna is perfect as a portable/emergency antenna or as a VHF/UHF antenna for those living in deed-restricted homes and apartments. In this video, we learn how to set up this sturdy, dependable antenna to get the maximum performance out of its design. Although the antenna is shown near ground level for ease of adjustment and clarity of explanation, you would get improved performance if you mounted the antenna around 25-30 feet/7.81-9.14 meters above ground. You may also want to provide lightning protection for the antenna.
