6 Meter Squalo Antenna Build

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3ZGJWuzgRs&ab_channel=K2CJBRadio This is post 2412 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas. Thanks to Chris (K2CJB) for this well-paced, easy to follow procedure in designing, building, and using a 6 meter squalo antenna. Years ago, squalo antennas were popular with mobile operators, since they were smaller and more compact than other antenna designs. The 6 meter version would be ideal for those living in deed-restricted homes or apartments.  Also, the squalo design is good for portable or field operations. Here are a few comments from Chris: Building and installing a homebrew 6M "squalo" antenna. Plans for this antenna can be found here: http://www.pa3hcm.nl/?p=312 ----- Thanks for joining us today. Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).

The "Squalo" resembles the old 2 Meter "Halo" Antennas that were popular with mobile hams several decades ago. This antenna is compact, portable, and highly "stealthy" for those living in deed-restricted homes and apartments. Cris does an excellent job of taking us step-by-step through the design, construction, and use of this unique 6 Meter antenna.
