Ruggedly constructed one piece design, this J-Pole antenna will last practically forever. Copper tubing has an extremely low electrical resistance, making it one of the most efficient materials for RF radiation. This J-Pole antenna makes a great base station and emcomm emergency communications amateur radio antenna.

What makes the KB9VBR J-Pole Antenna better?

  • Solid construction out of 1/2 inch copper tubing for years of reliable service
  • Low noise floor better than a wire antenna for capturing distant and weak signals
  • High Power output. Transmit 500+ watts of power. Less resistance means more energy output as RF signal
  • Pretuned for the 144-148 MHz VHF Amateur Radio Band. Just connect your coax and transmit
  • Omnidirectional radiation pattern, perfect for simplex, repeater and digital operation
  • Dual Band: works well on 70cm for good dual band performance. Check out the SWR plots to the right.
  • Gain of about 3dbi, better than a 1/4 wave groundplane antenna.
  • Reports in the field say this J-Pole antenna outperforms antennas such as the a Ringo Ranger.
Need a scanner antenna? This J-Pole works great as a VHF/UHF land mobile and public safety scanner antenna. Hear more stations for less money with the J-Pole antenna. Receive analog or digital, both wide and narrow band signals.


  • Overall length 69 inches, radiator 58 inches, matching stub 19 inches.
  • SO-239 connector soldered on at point of lowest SWR 
  • Each J-Pole antenna is individually tested and tuned for optimum performance on the 2 meter band.

Just wanted to leave a review for your 2m j-pole. This thing is simply amazing. I have it up about 20 feet in the air and am able to hit repeaters, and receive (with my Yaesu FT2800M) on ten watts, 45 miles away! It is quality built. It showed 1.4 SWR on 147.030. The customer service was top notch, and the shipping was lightning fast and fairly priced. If you want a great 2m antenna you do not have to search any further. You will not be disappointed! I will buy from this seller again! - eBay member: balz0nyer4head

This is the antenna your friends are talking about!
"I just had to write and Thank You again for great antenna. Excellent  antenna. I have a friend who has and brags about how well his Ringo  Ranger works. He has come over and listened while I worked contacts he  couldn't even hear !! Look forward to his order in the near future.  (LOL). Thanks again." - eBay member Fishinbarber.

This is a super antenna for any situation.

Great for base stations, this antenna can be mounted on a mast, tower or even strapped to an apartment balcony. Terrific antenna for digital; use it  on your packet, dx cluster or APRS station. Also great for portable use, and the rugged design makes it an excellent emergency antenna. Some  people even use it as a VHF scanner antenna.

I purchased on of these a year or so ago. I am happy with it. I run it on the nets and people tell me my signal is better then those expensive ones. Also last week I made contact with NA1SS 3 times with your antenna. You have me sold and I’ll recommend this to anyone!! - eBay member: sprecherphoto

No antenna is easier to set up or use! NO TUNING REQUIRED!

This antenna is shipped in one piece, ready to be put on the air. The  antenna is pre tuned for optimum performance on the 2 meter band. All  you need to do is connect the coax and transmit. With all the uncertainty in the world, reliable communications is paramount. You will not find a simpler, more reliable antenna than this one. With  nothing to adjust, this antenna is ready to give you years of reliable  service. This antenna is the perfect companion for your amateur or land  mobile base transceiver.

This antenna runs circles around antennas costing three times as much.

Featured in the January 2006 issue of Popular Communications!

I've been selling this antenna since 2001. With 1000's on the air; it's one of the the best selling J-Poles on eBay for the last TEN years.

Please view my feedback. I have received many positive reviews because of the quality and  performance of this antenna. I use top quality materials and  individually test each antenna for quality control. This is a premium  antenna at a great price; you will not be disappointed.

I found this antenna VERY good on UHF, and of very sturdy but light construction. I got it today, mounted it temporary on the roof, and starting working the repeaters. . . I've been a Ham 18 years, and this is my very first J-pole. Nicely done, Sir.

Michael I have hooked this antenna up using the RG-8 cable and have went from  picking up maybe 10 air traffic channels to 148 air traffic channels. I  love this antenna even if it just mounted on the beam in front of my one story house. It picks up almost too much. My scanner is working  overtime right now.

Just wanted to let you know that I received the J-Pole Saturday and have it  now up at 20 ft. and in operation. Installation was a snap! I am getting into repeaters up to 30+ miles away on 5 watts w/ an SWR of 1.4:1! Tnx  for the great product and solid craftsmanship. You are now Highly  recommended to any one of my ham friends in need of a reasonable and  solid J-Pole!
D. Miller - NøPKX

Hi. Thanks alot for the antenna.. I got it today in the mail. I think this  is an awesome antenna and you did a great job making it. I am hitting  repeaters now 60 miles away and am hearing repeaters across lake  Michigan :) Best antenna I have ever owned. Great Job. I will absolutely recommend them to everyone!
Thanks a bunch... This is exactly what I needed.
Andrew Keuhs - N8AGK

The J-Pole arrived today in excellent order and measured 1.2:1 across the 2 meter band using my MFJ 235B analyzer. Worked several repeaters with  it, I am very pleased with it. Workmanship is top notch.
Mike Heit - KD7YLA

Well the j-pole arrived today! I would like to say you have done a terrific  job on this antenna. I've built some like it in the past but yours just  looks like an excellent product right out of the box. The pictures on  eBay don't do it justice. This is as much a piece of art as it is  craftsmanship.
Ryan Tourge- K2RRT

I  recently bought one of your 2 meter J-poles on ebay.  I was going to  make a homebrew but when I looked at your "buy now" price and even added shipping, I doubt I could have made it any cheaper. I U-bolted it to a  25ft mast and I'm hitting every repeater within about a 30-40 mile  radius with great audio.  I love this antenna. Great product Mike, I'm  really pleased...73 Dave

I brought this antenna some time ago from you and this antenna
ROCKS, I am using it for APRS and it pulls in Digi repeaters from miles away  and since a live in the boonies that is most important. Once again  thanks for a great product 73s KA0DIZ

We have used this J-Pole on our 155 mhz emergency communications system  for a year now, and it has out performed our expectations. Thanks for a  great antenna--Traffic Alert USA

Who ever thought an antenna so simple would work so well!
