Do you need a simple, easily-built, and highly portable 2 meter antenna for field or emergency work? Then, a basic Moxon Antenna is what you need. In this video, Paul Athersmith shows us how to design, build, and use a 2 meter Moxon for dependable local or regional use. The antenna is lightweight and can be made from locally available materials. Why not spend some time this weekend making this effective and beautiful 2 meter antenna? If this antenna proves useful, you can always scale the basic design for any amateur/ham radio band of your choice. I onced use a Moxon design for a 10 meter antenna and got excellent results. Of course, that was a few years ago when propagation was better than it is now. The Moxon is an excellent choice for VHF/UHF service.
