Home Made Coat Hanger Discone

Reddit user soooooil has posted a series of images showing his home made Discone antenna made out of wire coat hangers and designed for a minimum frequency of 130MHz. His thread discussing the Discone is here.

Another page on a home made Discone also designed for a minimum of 130MHz is here with some brief instructions links to design calculators.
