DIY Discone Antenna.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvSfvrkXAoQ.  This is Post 2147 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to Stuart (KB1HQS), for this imaginative approach to building a simple VHF Discone Antenna.  Other than some audio problems, the video is fascinating, creative, and just plain "cool."

As Stuart explains, you don't need much to get on the air with this antenna:

"This is a brief video showing how to build a DIY discone antenna out of items you may have in your house. While the sound/video quality is terrible due to my camera dying, the content proves a point: you don't always have to buy an antenna to make contacts. 73, Stuart KB1HQS.com ★ FOLLOW ME HERE ★ Website: KB1HQS.com Twitter: @KB1HQS"
