TITLE:
Build An Antenna From Aluminum Crutches
 
PRESENTER:
Robert Fischer (WB8BEL)
 
DESCRIPTION:
Antenna materials are all around us. This novel 6M antenna can be tuned using standard adjustments on the crutches. Great for teaching/demonstrating resonance. Even better for attracting attention at hamfests and public events. An article on the antenna was published (with front page billing) in the August 2015 issue of "Nuts & Volts" magazine. I have worked Canadian, Caribbean and stateside 6M DX with "the crutches" mounted on my pickup truck in West Virginia. Well-received forums on this antenna have been presented at two other hamfests.
