How would you like to build a simple 2 meter antenna from locally available materials? Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) provides the answer in this easily understandable tutorial on the Slim Jim Antenna--an antenna suited for both home and portable use.

The video provides an excellent mix of practical antenna theory, simple construction practices, and motivation to get people building their own ham equipment.

Here are some general remarks from Kevin:
