Laminated Moxon Antenna

Haven't been updating my blog for some time. Not much activities towards my hobbies lately. Too tied up with other commitments...

Anyhow, managed to try fabricating Moxon Antenna for a friend. Unfortunately I forgotten to scale the dimensions to account for the PVC velocity factor of the laminating sheet resulting in very high SWR... Nonetheless, the friend is still able to smile a bit as the Slim-Jim I fabricated for him is giving him much pleasure in his QSO...
