Ham Radio - The simple coax cable emergency prepper antenna.

If you can see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: This post 2116 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

If you need a quick and easy 2 meter antenna, then this video from Kevin Loughnin (KB9RLW) is for you.

All you need is some surplus coaxial cable, simple tools, and "F" or PL-259 connectors.

Kevin does an excellent job of assembling this simple, classic version of the "sleeve dipole antenna".

Make a few of these antennas for your emergency "go-kit" or for your next mini-dxpedition to the nearest public park.  A fun, educational project that will prove useful in emergency  and portable operations.

Here are some remarks from Kevin:

" old design that many new hams may not be familiar with. Easy to build with minimal tools, great emergency throw-it-together antenna.
