Building antennas is fun, and when you get them to work, your signals are just that much better because of your hard work.
Using the plans by Andrew Griffith W4ULD, this antenna is cheap and easy to build. Materials include: copper water pipe and fittings, a bit of plastic pipe and some coax. In less than an afternoon, you too can build this excellent performing antenna.
Watch the construction video! You can view it here if you have broadband internet service. Or you can download a Windows Media version. Greg N9CHA shot and produced this video with the help of Joe AB9OU.
Have fun! This project uses tools you probably have in the workshop, plus a torch for soldering the copper pipe fittings.
