This j-pole looks very buildable. Thanks!
What? Buy an antenna when I can spend twice as much to build one half as good and get myself a new scar in the process? :D
I may see if I can put an antenna together this weekend. I want to put together both 10m and 2m antennas, not sure which will come first.
I'm also hoping to visit W6WEM in Meadow Vista some time in the next few days for a look at his skywire loop.
I did manage to check in to the NCARC 2m net last night by putting my old SO-239 ground plane on a broomstick and taking it up and down the driveway. Full story and a pic here:
Tomorrow I'm hoping to move some stuff out of the garage to clear more space for a radio shack. Amaryllis, KJ6TFT, should be available in the afternoon to help haul some unwanted furniture to the thrift store.
So much to do...
