Slim Jim Roll Up J Pole

Paul Zoba

I have another week and a half in my cast, so I’m not going upstairs to my shack much. I picked up one of these dual band roll up J Poles and while it works well on 2 meter, I’m not getting out on 70 cm. I have it hanging next to my couch and connected to a Yaesu VX6R HT at 5w.

Here’s what my antenna analyzer has to say. The zero impedance is the problem, right? Should be 50 ohms....?

Thanks for any thought...
