DIY helical antenna for 2m

A few weeks ago I made a rubber duck helical antenna for my TH-F7E. I didn’t get around to writing about it at the time, plus it took a while to get some reports of its performance.

Well, it works extremely well, and I have just added a description of how to make it to the main G4ILO’s Shack website. See A DIY Ducky for 2m.
