This is post 2459 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.
If you have an old satellite dish on your property, why not convert it to a slot antenna for the 2 m and 70 cm amateur radio bands?
In this quick video, Jim (AG6IT) shows us how to change a piece of unwanted gear into something useful.
Here are some comments from Jim:
a 40 inch slot cut in a parabolic dish, fed with a so239 jumper about 4.5 inches from the end of a slot, yields a stealthy antenna which can be used for 2m and 70cm. Vertically polarized and blends in nicely. Everyone has a dish on their eve now days. Enjoy! AG6IF Jim
