J-Pole antennas for the 2m and 70 cm (VHF/UHF) Amateur Radio bands come in many sizes, ranging from commercial models based on public service designs to homebrewed configurations using coaxial cable, 450 ohm ladder line, or even TV twin lead. Supporting structures can be anything from PVC pipe to wood, including temporary lashups affixed to your home, shack, or garage.
In this video, we see a near commercial grade J-Pole antenna based on a design from Silicon Valley engineer Ed Fong. The fully-encased antenna is lightweight, portable, and adequate for most field and home operations.
