This is post 2543 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.
At 2 meter frequencies, a vertical extended double zepp antenna is a realizable project using locally available materials.
Peter shows us how the antenna is made and explains what results we can achieve. As a bonus, the antenna also works on the 6 meter Amateur Radio Band.
Here are some of his comments:
A very simple but very good omnidirectional vertical antenna for VHF FM simplex and repeaters. But that's not all. What is it? It's a extended double zepp antenna for 2m. And it does 6m as well. Watch to find out how easy one is to build.
Thanks for joining us today.
