Default home brew

Or make your own, learn and save some $$. For me, half the fun is learning about and building antennas. Here a couple of links for j-poles. With a j-pole and 5 watts you should be able to hit any repeater in the Springs area including Pikes Peak. Here are a few links to home brew j-poles.

Recently built my first HF antenna and now looking into doing a "portable" 6m sometime soon.
