Antenna for Marine VHF by rickman
A kayaking friend was asking me about antennas for marine VHF radios. Someone recommended this type of antenna. http://www.amateurradio.bz/2m-70cm_vertical_dipole_antenna.html I guess my first question is what would this be dual band? Is it because it works over a range from 2 meters to 70 cm?...

Surely the same reduction in size should be possible with mag loops for...

Yagi Antenna Design by rickman
