Roll Up Slim Jim Antenna for Emergency Preparedness. Post #1552.

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

A nicely done video from Coach Helder (W2NTC) on how to set up and use the 2m/70cm rollup slim jim/J-Pole antenna by Nelson Antennas.  Coach discusses indoor and outdoor applications of this sturdy, well-crafted antenna.  Antenna tests were made using a Yaesu VX-8DR HT.  You may want to buy two of these antennas--one for your emergency "go-kit" and the other for home use.  If you feel more adventuresome, you could make your own slim jim/J-Pole from locally available materials.
