“A Tri-Band Antenna for 2 meters, 220 MHz,
& 70 cm Antenna Without Radials”
WB6IQN will present his new patent on a Tri Band base antenna (TBJ-1),
featured in QST March 2017. The antenna operates on 2mt/ 1.25mt/ 70cm. It uses no radials
and is only 6ft tall.
Ed worked on this concept for several years and first presented this antenna design at Pacificon 2015.
He will give a historical perspective of how this antenna was developed and also explain how this antenna works.
Since its introduction, its popularity has exploded. Sales have not only been to the ham community but also to military, government and commercial applications.
