Building And Tuning 2 Meter 144 Mhz Copper J Pole Antenna. Post 1790.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: An excellent, well-thought-out video tutorial from "CA militia."  The video takes you from basic design and construction to on-air use.  You can get most of the antenna materials from your neighborhood hardware or home improvement outlet. Although tuning of this antenna is a bit tricky, the rewards of an almost 3dB gain over a simple ground plane antenna make this project worthwhile.
