Standardized Frequency List

Portable Diple Centers
Here are the 3D-printable dipole center files: There is one with the mounts for tubes and one with mounts for circular ends. Simply download the file to a flash frive and take it to the Rapid City library for printing. It costs about $5 for the materials. Make sure you ask for ABS plastic and "no supports." It takes about 3 hours to print.
