2M j-pole in a small diameter radome

Jim <n6med@...>

Adding to the myriad of 2M j-pile plans "out there", to our file area I've added a sketch of a 2M j-pole, the prototype of which was built several years ago for Santa Cruz County ARES (I have since built my own). It is notable in that it uses 1/2" >outside diameter< PVC intended for hot water pipe. It makes a really terrific antenna for portable use.

Best regards --
