==============================================================

As normal on club nights I will ask you all if you would like to donate (there is no pressure to do so) towards the club’s insurance, RSGB Affiliation, storage, call signs, etc. If you can spare now £2 instead of the £1 that would be absolutely superb also if you want you can donate for the whole year, starts January every year, which is £24, it helps me enormously plus I don’t pester you on Club Night

FT 817 spare antenna

Hi,

operating from a high and windy hill at the weekend, a small kit bag with the whip antenna for my FT817 blew away (plus a couple of leads).  I was going to make up a temporary antenna with a piece of copper wire and have tried to calculate the resonant length for 145.500MHz.  At the risk of embarrassing myself 17cm is what I have come down too.  Any suggestions on the correct length (I can trim with the SWR meter) or on a home brew replacement design.  Lightweight preferably.

Thanks
