New 2 meter antenna

Had a few free hours on Sunday and put this beast together. It’s a j-pole with a decoupling section at the bottom to reduce common mode currents reflecting down the grounded mast. I was thrilled when my analyzer showed 1:1 SWR at a little over 147MHz and 53 ohms. Successfully hit a handful of repeaters…
