Ham Radio - Super cheap antenna insulators. Post #1282.

If you can't view this video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: You'd be amazed at the materials you can use for your antenna projects.  For example, take the case of antenna insulators.  While you can buy profession ceramic insulators on line, why not build them yourself with materials found in your home or at the nearest building supply/hardware store?  In this video, Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) used something called "Campbell Plastic Clips" for his antenna insulators.  They seem to work well and stand up to varying weather conditions.  I've used electric fence egg insulators, pvc pipe, and even thick rubber bands for my homemade antenna insulators.  Be creative and see what you can find for your next antenna project.
