Re: [loopantennas] Digest Number 432
- HI GUys,
Walmart has large hula hoops for $1. The ends are
joined with staples and a inner rigid tube.
Remove the staples and take the little tube out.
Cut the joiner tube in half and use for fittings
to a small project box . After drilling a hole on
each side of the project box epoxy the the two
halfs of the joiner tube you cut into the holes.
The hula hoop can now connect back to the
fittings and complete the hoop but now you have
the project box inline with it for a amp and to
make connections to the wire you run through the
hoop. I am using coax to run through the hula
hoop with a gap at the top. Hope this gives some
food for thought. Works well and is water proof
and can be painted to match the garden. I also
made a stand for it out of PCV pipe. So far I
think I have $5 into it. have fun, ..scott
