2m/70cm dipole antenna
From Tyrel's Wiki
- 2x Steel Rods
- PVC Tee 1 inch
- 2x 1 inch U bolt
- 4x washers
- 2x wing nuts
- 2x screw
- Plexiglass 18 x 3 inches
- Coax Cable PL259
- Zip tie mounts, and zip ties.
I followed the instructions from Zed Zed's 2m/70cm Vertical Dipole Antenna and the write up is really good with measurements.
The following two measurements I kept:
- Bend the steel rod around a \3/8" curve, leave one length at 6 1/4" and the other at 18 5/8".
- Attach to the rods 1 3/4" apart on the plexiglass.
The rest you can leave up to how ever it looks best for you.
