Re: J-pole portable antenna
I've built 6m & 2m J-poles, and used the Arrow. The Arrow is a whole lot easier, less time and fuss, to set up and use. About as plug and play as can be.
I've spent many hours building 2 & 6 m J poles, that's a fun way to spend a few days, setting up a 2 in dia 6 m J-pole. The 2 m is a little easier, mostly because the size. I used 3/4 in copper tubing, and plexiglass. Works well.. but it took a couple days fiddling around to gather all the parts, pieces, fit and tuning. The Arrow took 15 minutes to be on the air.
They both talked the same.
Have a great day,
