Re: Home Brew antenna question.






Hi John

Wa5vjb specked out a 435  antenna  Just keep looking there several 
places  on the web the have his antenna's
it is on the bottom of the page on the web site I just looked at.

I built a set the 5 element 2 meter and an 11 element 435 used them 
for about a year before I went to the Gulf Alpha Cross
I am using now.  I made several hundred contacts with the setup.  worked well
