The MW3RUH , Dave Thomas SLIM JIM PROJECT
Using "custom" spacers!
More Ham Ingenuity from across the pond!

"I Had a go at making the
Slim Jim from the Hamuniverse website.
 I used plastic reels to distance the spacing out correctly.
Tested on 144,000 ,145,000 and 146,000.
SWR is 1.2 across the board. Opens the repeater on low power.
See the pictures below and have fun!
Excellent project!"
......73 DAVE

Congrats Dave on that new license!

Notice plastic ties holding them in place.

Editor's Note:
Dave's tips on the spacers using plastic reels really shows us
 that a little "Ham Ingenuity" can go a long way!
See Dave's ideas for the "Ugly Balun" here!
