The easiest antenna to build for six meters using one piece of RG-58 coax.


 

One of the simplest, least expensive antennas for the 6 meter amateur radio band can be found in your junk box.

In this video from Hayden Honeywood (VK7HH), we see how one piece of RG-58 coaxial cable can be used to make what the late Bill Orr (W6SAI) called the "Cobra Antenna."

Hayden's modification of Orr's "classic" antenna is easy-to-make and can be used for both "field" use and at your home station.

The completed antenna can be added to your emergency "go kit" for rapid deployment for SOTA/POTA operations.

Here are some comments from Hayden (VK7HH):

This is a really simple and easy to construct antenna that will get you on the air on the six meter band using only RG-58 coax! I needed a quick and simple antenna for my WSPR beacon over the summer season. Enter the coaxial dipole or aka flowerpot antenna!
