Build An Antenna From Aluminum Crutches
Robert Fisher (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. I have presented forums on the antenna at two hamfests in West Virginia. It was well received at both. An article on the antenna was published (with front page billing) in the August 2015 issue of "Nuts & Volts" magazine. If you would like to see it, I would be happy to send a picture of the antenna mounted on my pickup. I can also park the pickup/antenna outside the Hamcation entrance on the day of the presentation. I have worked Canadian, Caribbean and stateside DX with "the crutches" mounted on my pickup truck in WV.
