Emergency 2m Field Expedient Antenna


If you had to build an emergency 2m antenna in the field, could you do it?

In this video, KB1HQS uses his imagination to create a workable 2m VHF antenna out of broken hiking poles.

It's always a good idea to carry an emergency antenna when you explore the great outdoors with your ham radio gear.

Here are some general comments from KB1HQS:

In the field you often have to work with what you have on hand. In this video, I build a 2m dipole out of my broken hiking poles. Dipole Calculator: http://www.westmountainradio.com/ante...
