Pogo Stick Antenna Build night

At the General Meeting last night, we also held a Pogo Stick Antenna build night.

Most of the night was spent testing different lengths of cable to get the perfect SWR for the antenna. As is the case with R&D it always takes the majority of time…..

Finally we were able to get a good SWR for 146MHz or 1.1:1

Big thanks to Craig for fetching supplies, Anthony, Trevor, Mark, John, Bob, Ray, Trevor and Christine for attending and helping in one way or another.

1st November will be the next WARG General Meeting, and we will be building even more antennas on the night.

Pogostick antennas are available from WARG Shop. They can usually be bought at Swap meets that we attend.
