The Radiating Element

This isn’t of much interest to most folks I suppose, but this is a 1/4 wave antenna tuned to approximately 146.000mhz which is the center of the VHF 2-meter ham radio band. The band is 144.0 to 148.0mhz. It’s very short yet does a good job for me, mounted to the truck bed. I told you it wouldn’t be interesting!

Total length is 19.3 inches

    • No worries! Antenna systems for the VHF and UHF radio frequencies have been a specialty of mine for decades. I used to have a 90 foot tower in Michigan years ago which had multiple antenna systems attached to it. Fun!
