Re: J-pole portable antenna

Dale Putnam

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.

  Your choice.

Have a great day,
