CVARC Hosting J-POLE Antenna Build May 20th

The J-POLE is a dual band, 2 meter and 70 cm antenna. It’s perfect for portable operations and well suited for mounting at home. Best of all,  it takes up very little space! Primarily a dipole, the J-pole antenna exhibits a mostly omnidirectional pattern with an average gain near 2.2 dBi.

The antenna will provide a great improvement in range for repeater access and simplex contacts.
