  1. Good Morning! I purchased an N9TAX dual band slim jim antenna for Murs/GMRS/FRS used from a guy. I bought it because I had tried making them and I am having a hard time getting them to resonate with the online calculators. I have been using this one indoors (my hobby room) and outoors (in my shop) and it receives really well, I think it transmits well, I am unsure as I have no repeater in my area and only hear FRS traffic. Once in a while I chat with people. I do use it to monitor scanner frequencies as well, and it works great! Let me know if you use these and what you think! WRMQ982
  2. I am a newbie working on setting up my ribbon slim jim inside my apartment as I cannot mount an outside antenna. Everyone talks about keeping it away from metal objects but how far away? I need to use the antenna in my kitchen which of course has a refrigerator and range that are curiously made of metal. I also would like to know which part of the antenna radiates. The top or the bottom?
