Simple Ham Radio Antennas: Homebrew Ham Radio Antenna Mount for Camping. Post #385.


. Here's another great operating idea from "Tinker John" (W5CYF). This time, John uses a slightly modified 2 inch clamp for an easy and handy antenna mount for the "Hamstick" type of antenna. John uses a counterpoise wire on the clamp to help bring SWR under control. Tuning of "Hamstick" antennas can be difficult if you don't adjust the "stinger" quite right. With the proper adjustments and the use of a counterpoise wire, this antenna will serve your campsite very well. This is a great weekend project. Good luck!
