Merry Christmas from KB9VBR J-Pole antennas. I hope your holidays where Merry and Bright and that Santa Claus brought what you wished for. Maybe your Christmas wish was to contact rare DX, peace on earth, or to receive a bright new shiny rig under the tree. I can’t help much with the 2nd wish, but if you received a new VHF/UHF radio for Christmas, this is the place to come for a new antenna.
The KB9VBR 2 meter J-Pole antenna is a great choice for your new VHF 2 meter rig. If you received a handheld radio, read my post about how to connect your handheld radio to an external antenna. New hams often start out with HTs but find the range limiting. A good antenna makes all the difference between making the contact and getting lost in the noise.
Merry Christmas once again, spend some time with people you love. After that, if you need a diversion, head on down to the ham shack.
