Hustler Vertical Antenna Modification for 12 & 17 meters. Post #1331.

If you can't view this video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box:

The Hustler 6ATV is an exceptionally well-made vertical antenna, but, in its original condition, doesn't cover the popular 12 and 17 meter amateur radio bands.

In this video, K5ACL ("Signal Search") shows us how he modified the 6ATV to operate on 12 and 17 meters without affecting the other HF bands.

All you have to do is follow K5ACL's step-by-step procedure and trim/adjust to obtain a low SWR.  The estimated cost of this modification is approximately $8.00 (USD).
