Product Description

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.

The J-Pole makes a great base station and emcomm emergency communications amateur radio and scanner antenna. Works well with handheld HT radios, base stations, and repeaters. Ruggedly constructed one piece design, this J-Pole antenna will last practically forever. Copper has an extremely low electrical resistance, making it one of the most efficient materials for RF radiation.

Benefits:

  • Rugged construction for years of reliable service
  • Low noise floor picks up weak signals better than comparable wire or plastic enclosed antennas
  • Wide bandwidth, (4+ MHz across the 2 meter band). No need to retune
  • Omnidirectional RF radiation pattern is balanced for communicating with stations at or slightly above the horizon line.
  • Pretuned and ready to go for the 2 meter amateur radio band

The only difference between the 2 meter J-Pole and the 2 meter Break-away model is the addition of the screw connector in the middle for easy storage and transport. I like to take this particular antenna camping as the two piece design takes up less space than the one piece antenna.

KB9VBR 2 Meter J-Pole Antenna Specifications:

  • Constructed out of 1/2 inch copper tubing
  • Overall length 69 inches
  • radiator 58 inches
  • matching stub 19 inches
  • Choice of SO-239 or N Female connector is soldered on at the point of lowest SWR
  • Omnidirectional radiation pattern
  • Gain is about 3dbi or 2.5dbd compared to a 1/4 wave ground plane

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.

Dual Band Performance in a single antenna:

Each antenna is individually tested and tuned for optimum performance on their respective bands. The two meter antenna is tuned to 146MHZ (1.2:1 SWR or less at 146MHz), and the SWR is 1.4:1 or less throughout the entire 2 meter band. This antenna also works great as a dual band antenna. The antenna will tune up on 70cm for excellent dual band performance.

    I received my shiny, new break-a-way antenna yesterday! The workmanship was great. I attached it to a wonderpole and raised it 21 feet. On the other end of the antenna I had connected a Yaesu FT 60 HT radio – 5 watt output. Hitting the repeaters was not an issue at all. I had a friend meet me on a simplex channel and we chatted for an amazingly long time as he was driving away from the area. Several other operators joined in. One from appx 40 miles away. They were all amazed at the great sound from my little radio and the J-Pole! I highly recommend this antenna! It will be used not only for base station applications, but as well for working events with the local club I belong to. I am very pleased!

    I just purchased my second 2 Meter Break-a-Way J Pole from Michael for field day and ECOMM use.
    My first antenna is in my attic and gets great signal reports from my 4 W HT to repeater, other mobiles, and base stations. Michael’s materials, workmanship, and customer service are excellent with great pricing. I look forward to his newsletters every month. I learn something new every issue!

    I bought this as my first VHF/UHF antenna after getting my technician/general license and mounted it in my attic. I was amazed at getting pretty good reception from a repeater 20+ miles away, and chatted with a friend about 40 miles away. Would definitely recommend.
