J pole update

Took long enough... But I finally got it done.... Made a quick portable mount from a photo light stand and a few pieces of PVC.... Used hose clamps to secure the coax for now...(initial try soldering a pl259 - failed)

Added a few turns of the coax and about 30 ft of cable... This will also be used in the attic... Until my swr/power meter comes in to test it out, I'll leave it be. There should be enough gain to compensate for the losses.... we'll see.

Next a hand held VHF/UHF yagi for satellite comms.
