How to make the easiest 2 meter dipole antenna for your HT.


 Thanks to Chuck (KK6USY) for this simple antenna project that will boost the performance of your HT.

Chuck takes us step-by-step through the design, construction, testing, and use of this inexpensive 2 meter dipole antenna which will come in handy for your next SOTA/POTA (Summits on the Air/Parks on the Air) expedition.

Put one of these antennas in your go-box, just in case you need a little more "reach" for your HT.
