DIY VHF Marine Radio Antenna




What do you think about this video?

Gordon Foster: It needs an RF choke on the bottom end to stop common mode currents flowing back to the transceiver. 9 turns on RG58 about one inch dia should do it.

Steve Wright: Hey buddy, good on ya teaching people stuff! Suggestions - solder the braid inside the plug, or else it will corrode up pretty quick and it will be hard to diagnose that fault. Any ol coax from the junkbox will be perfectly fine, and some of the 75ohm cabletv coax is actually a really high quality item! Try also to use flexible inner instead of solid, coz it will snap off inside the plug etc. Keep the vids coming! :)

tom7601: The cable plug a PL-259. The mating socket is an SO-239... :)

Shannon Duffy: Hi there it be interesting on learning to build a uhf antenna with simular stuff. How would i be able to do it?
