Antenna identification

Post by cb4ever104 » 12 Aug 2018, 20:05

Hi Guys.

Can someone help me out with this one. Picked it up with a 11m rig , so I'm assuming it's for that band. SO259 on the bottom. It's about 3 feet in length. Maybe a balcony job ?

Had one years ago. Tandy used to knock them out. Utter dross, sold as a subtle easy to install job.

Same sort of thing as the old Bazooka aerial. Yep, they're pretty useless unless you only need to get a mile or two.

Stick an LED strip on it and a 9v battery and use it as a lightsabre :)
