2 Meter Slot-Cube Antenna (QST Jan 2019) K1AWC on 16/1/19
I started to build this antenna from the article and upon dry fitting the copper fittings, found nothing was coming together properly, Started searching the net and found this form but still have questions...

K1AWC, what mods did you make? You never elaborated on them other than changing the coax to 75 ohm. Did anybody find out why the dimensions are so different than the article? KC6ZBE, your initial resonance at 152Mhz is a LONG way off from the ham band. Did you readjust the size to reach resonance on 2 meters? if so, what are your final measurements? AD6ZH, you said you increased the loop by 1 inch. What were your final dimensions for the loops? Any change to the vertical copper?

Thanks for your help guys! de N7LT
