Re: To HAM or not to Ham, that is the question

Gee... how about Internet repeaters!! Why I don't have anything 2m/70cm aboard is something I don't understand. Let's go see what they sell nowadays, portable? fixed?

What do you guys use for 70cm antenna?

ciao!
Nick.

Personally, I don't use 70cm much, but have it on my IC706-G, HT and a mobile. Anytime I am on it, I normally use a simple ground plane with whatever parts/wire I happen to have laying around like old wire hanger, tape measure or extra copper wire. I tend to make some junk that might not last long but does work.
