Project 2 Meter Quarter Wave Antenna
#1
I finally got around to making a better antenna for my Beofang handheld radio. Made it per this YouTube video:

Got it all done and realized I didn't have a cable to hook it up to the radio.  Bash
I ordered one from Amazon which will be here Monday.

I have made one like that, but instead of bolting it I soldered it.

Looking good Ed! As to the coax, I like to keep an extra couple of feet on hand...

Actually it's not bad. LMR-400, 500' spool, $238 with free shipping (current price). I waited months before buying it since I knew a number of people that already bought it. After a few months their opinion of it was the same as when they first got it, they all said to buy it. Some of them have purchased another spool or two - which, IMO, is an even better review.
