    For sale are these home brew dual band easy install antennas. Inside the pvc that I paint for uv resistance is a twin lead 450 ohm slim jim / j-pole antenna. This is a great performer. Low swr across both bands. See the attached pics illustrate ease of installation as well as the cool design. I include two flat head wood screws. Just put one screw into your facia, put a level on it and install the second screw. Others have installed them on their towers using a piece of unistrut with a mast clamp. Howecer you do it, it is the ultimate plug and play antenna.
    The cost is $55. and I pay the economy shipping conus. If you have interest or questions:

    Hi Joe:
    I do not see where you mention what 2 bands the j-pole PVC antenna covers?

    Hello Donnie
    Sorry about that, it's a 2m/70cm antenna.

    Can you make them for any other bands. not 160M, it would be so tall I could leave snacks for ISS on it, but maybe 1.25m or 6M

    That's a good one. I could do 1.25 but the 6m would end up around 9 ft long and not practical for this pvc design. Thanks for ur interest.

    The word picture of the ISS picking up snacks was to good to pass up. I have to be careful about tall antennas, my xyl is afraid I will think I am 21 again and do something age inappropriate.
