Build An Antenna From Aluminum Crutches
Robert Fischer (WB8BEL)
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.
