2 Meter Slot-Cube Antenna (QST Jan 2019) K1AWC on 14/12/18
I'm working on building the antenna. I sent John an email suggesting some more details. So far the measurements are OK except that I've had to make the top short horizontal that comes off the top tee about 5 3/8" and the bottom one about 6" to fit better. I've also made up 1" stubbs to connect the tees to the elbows on the 7" vertical. I'm concerned about overheating the CPVC coupling when I solder the last fittings for that mesh. I intend to solder up that section of the antenna first. I'm enjoying the project and look forward to replacing my J-pole.
