How to make a 2 meter band tape antenna.


Have you ever made a 2 meter band antenna from parts found in your home?  This can be done if you have some "duck tape", some metallic tape, and way to support your new "creation."

In this video, Ben Eadie (VE6SFX) shows how he used copper foil tape, a length of "duck tape", and a homemade support to create an efficient, cheap J-Pole antenna for the 2 meter amateur radio band.

Make one of these antennas for your emergency "go-kit" or for that next POTA/SOTA expedition.
