Antenna Build

Well, A good time was had by those who attended the Antenna build last weekend (25 Feb 23)

There were 2 meter J-Pole antennas made of 1/2 inch copper, and 2 meter directional antennas built from measuring tapes! We hope at the end of the month to have a fox hunt at a local park.  If you would like to build one of these this month, let me know we can since we have some spare materials. First come first served basis - email me at
