An extremely well done introduction to the Slim Jim/J Pole antenna system from Jim (MK0UKD).
Jim provides essential design, construction, and operational procedures for this popular antenna, which is widely used on VHF/UHF amateur radio bands. With a little creativity and a bit more space, J Poles can be used on the 20m, 17m, 15m, 12m, and 10m amateur radio bands.
Jim provides excellent reference sources, along with photos and visuals that explain the basic theory behind these antennas.
