Cheap, Quick, Easy to Build, Works Great QRP Portable Antenna!


A wonderfully simple, hardy, and cheap portable antenna from "Tinker John" (W5CYF). Most of the parts are probably in your "junk" box or are available at the nearest home improvement outlet or neighborhood hardware store. I've built similar antennas for use in portable and emergency situations. These basic, no frills antennas work and they will get you plenty of contacts. You could even use this antenna as a temporary "skyhook" at your home station. Half the fun of amateur radio is building your own wire antennas. You learn something at minimum cost that will last for years. Have fun! For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars. These news feeds are updated daily.
