In this exceptionally clear and understandable video, Kevin Loughin (KB9RLWQ) revives a classic antenna that can be made from locally available materials and used for a variety of purposes, ranging from casual portable operations to last-minute emergencies.
This handy 2 meter antenna is easy to build from a piece of 50-ohm coaxial cable; requires only simple tools for construction; and serves as a great "throw-together" antenna for your "go-kit." Make one of these simple antennas and store it in your vehicle for those unexpected emergencies.
