If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcU2BZ7aBB8. Here's part 2 of the "Hourglass Antenna" from "Radiopreppers.com."  The antenna is based on a design by John Stanley (K4ERO) and can be used successfully on 2 meter Single Sideband and CW. According to the "Radiopreppers.com" website, this horizontally polarized VHF antenna can also be used on VHF digital modes.  The antenna has approximately 5 dB gain (nearly as much as a 2 meter Moxon Antenna), is almost omni-directional, and is easily portable.  The antenna shows a 50 ohm impedance and can be fed with a good quality coaxial cable. ---------------------- For the latest Amateur/Ham Radio news, events, and information, please visit these websites: http://www.HawaiiARRL.info. http://www.arrl.org. http://www.blubrry.com/arrlaudionews/ https://oahuarrlnews.wordpress.com. https://hamradiohawaii.wordpress.c
