This is the construction VIDEO of a copper cactus style j pole antenna. I noticed that the mic on my new camera pics up sound a little to good, so the torch is perhaps a little on the loud sided. I hope you all enjoy this video and I hope it it helps you out and any questions you may have. If you have any questions please feel free to post them and I will reply asap. I have recently tested this antenna on my Wouxun KG-UV6DV2 and it works GREAT! I was in my basement even and was hitting towers that were between 15-25 miles away. I am very impressed and can't wait to get it installed outside on the house.

I have the antenna tuned in for 145.210 since that's the closest repeater and what I use with this antenna. SWR Rating. 145.210 Mhz @ 1.1:1 144.000 Mhz @ 1.4:1 to 148.000 Mhz @ 1.3:1
