2 Meter Full Wave Loop-The Magic Wand Antenna. Post #1437.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHyZIkyzwRw. If you enjoy antenna experiments, you may find this 2 meter full wave loop an intriguing project.  This antenna is based on the original Ed Fong Dual Band VHF/UHF (2m/70cm) J-Pole PVC Pipe Antenna.  Most of the materials can be bought at your neighborhood hardware or building supply outlet.  With a good set of tools and a few hours of work in your shack, you will have an antenna with some interesting characteristics.  You could even use this antenna in stealth mode to avoid nosey neighbors in deed-controlled housing (HOAs and CC&Rs).
