This is post 2466 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

The recently opened 4-meter Amateur Radio Band is now available in some EU nations as well as the UK.

Thanks to "Oxford Shortwave Log" for this ultra simple coaxial sleeve antenna for this new  band.  So far, results have been good with this simple antenna.  

Here are some general comments from the author:

Hi there, i found this design on the internet and it's working perfectly for chats with my Harwell ARS friends on the 4m band. I'm being copied on the other side of Oxfordshire at S9+60 dBs with just 5 Watts TX power. You can't say fairer than that lol. Thanks for watching. Keep safe. 73s,

Thanks for joining us today.

Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
