Old TV rabbit ears as a junk box 2 meter antenna

This is post 2354 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

When I "junked" an old TV receiver several years ago, I saved the attached "rabbit ears" antenna for possible future use.  I converted the old TV antenna into a simple, free 2 meter dipole antenna just as Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) did in this video. 

All you need are a few basic tools and a little time to make this collapsable, portable antenna.  Make a few alterations and soon you'll have a nice antenna for both home and portable use.

Like Kevin, I'm a strong believer is adapting older technology to current ham radio use.  Have fun with this project!

Thanks for joining us today.
