  1. Thanks for this very helpful material. I have a question: Where should be the center of the Coax be installed? Longside or Shortside.

    1. Depending on who you ask or where you look, some say it doesn’t matter. But I attach the coax center to the long side – it’s always worked very well for me.

  2. I want to make a Jpole antenna for the 222MHz band! There are lots of antennas for all the bands but have not seen anything for this band. There must be some but not found them. I am disabled retired living off SS. That makes Ham radio hard to use. I am hoping to be able to make an antenna for the 222MHz band to use with my new Anytone D578 radio. Thank you for any help you can give me.
