Back to the workbench for a bit, to build a sandflag that’s also an antenna.

This one was somewhat popular, and went on to be used on our Canning trip.



A sand flag is yet another sticky-up thing on your vehicle, but unlike the rest of those things on our vehicle, this one’s not an antenna. But could it be? How hard can it be? Just wrap some wire around it and adjust on the NanoVNA? We give it a go and find out.
