2 meter dipole with Buddistick vertical

Tonight I decided to play around with my Buddistick vertical setup to see if I could make a 2m dipole for ssb contacts. I drilled and tapped a piece of 1/8″ aluminum flatbar and used it to mount my 2nd adjustable whip. I could actually hear some of the Monday night RMVHF+ Net from outside the house, but it was really faint. I flipped it vertical and keyed up a local repeater. I’ll try this again on an upcoming SOTA trip. I plan to ultimately build up or buy a portable 2m/70cm Yagi for this work. This setup will be nice if it works since I’m not carrying anything extra with me.
