The Two Meter J-Pole Antenna is our most popular model. It comes in two different configurations, either as  a one piece antenna for base station use, or as a two piece breakaway model great for portable operations.

There are literally hundreds of antennas on the market, what makes this antenna any better than some of the higher priced you’ve seen or experienced? The simple answer is that it just plain works great. Dollar for dollar, the KB9VBR J-Pole antenna may be the best value on the amateur radio antenna market.

Please view my video for more benefits and a real world demonstration of the antenna’s operation.

This style of antenna has been said to outperform a Ringo Ranger:

I just had to write and Thank You again for great antenna. Excellent antenna. I have a friend who has and brags about how well his Ringo Ranger works. He has come over and listened while I worked contacts he couldn’t even hear !! Look forward to his order in the near future. (LOL). Thanks again. – eBay member Fishinbarber.

I got the 2 meter J-Pole about a week or two ago and just now finally got it mounted. Very nice! I have been reading the Missouri repeater directory trying to see how many repeaters I can hit. So far, the furthest is 90 miles away. I was actually taken by suprise when I keyed up, said my call and got a repeater beep back! I was not expecting to hit one that far away. Talked on another repeater that was 60 miles away and he stated I was full quieting. Very awesome! – Andrew WA0TFV

The 2 Meter Breakaway J-Pole Antenna

2 meter breakaway antenna

The Breakaway 2 meter J-Pole is the same antenna as the original model but with a two piece design. Same dimensions and specs as the original J-Pole but with a screw connector in the middle for easy transport and storage. Now the antenna will fit in the trunk of your car. Carry it with you for fast emergency communications deployment.

I like to take this particular antenna camping as the two piece design takes up less space than the one piece antenna.
