Hi Everyone 

I hit the West Bridgewater repeater, with this antenna upstairs in
My shack, if I get it in the attic with a rotator, I’d have great 440mhz

    I was very fortunate that my dad was able to machine the frames out of some leftover scrap material he was going to throw out at his machine shop. He’s now happily retired, so I can’t reproduce this 😀. The small size of a 70cm quad makes this easily portable, but would do well in my small attic.I couldn’t hit the 449.9875 repeater with my HT, but Ray KC1RAY said he heard me clearly with the quad, he didn’t realize I was doing it over RF.On Mon, Jan 29, 2024 at 10:23 PM Michael Nye <n1ntm@hotmail.com> wrote:
