Simple 2M/70cm poratble base antenna

I put this together with a couple of pieces of PVC, a apex thread adapter (sourced from Buddy Pole) & a 12 ft painters pole. Used a few eye bolts to attach guy wires made from para cord. A coax adapter for my handheld and I'm set for most occasions.

Image

Guy wire setup; just some para cord and a few S hooks from Harbor Freight.

Image

Add a few tent stakes

Image

Give yourself plenty of coax so you have placement options.

Image

Standard 12 ft painters pole from Home Depot

Image

Few wraps of electrical tape on the base of the antenna for a tight fit.

Image

Here it is partially assembled

Image

Notice the screw that holds the antenna in place

Image

Extended

Image

Painters pole slides right into a shackle on my Jeep or my trailer for a nice steady mount.

Image

Coax adapter for handheld

Image

Everything packed for travel. Everything fits in the bag other than the antenna and painters pole.
