After comparing the home-brew 2m antennas made in past posts, I decided to rebuild the J-Pole antenna. The feed point needed better protection from the elements. In the previous version the connections were just taped. The brackets for spacing and holding the antenna also needed to be stronger.
So far the antenna rebuild has gone well. The only problem has been the top for the enclosure needs to be reprinted. The screw hole to attach the cover did not line up. In our next post, we will install a redesigned cover and finish our build.
