Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Vertical aerials for HF short wave amateur ham radio bands. Post #451.


Exceptionally well-done and ably narrated by Ray of the "Radio Workshop" in the UK. Ray provides an easy to understand basic tutorial on the theory, design, and construction of simple vertical antennas for HF, shortwave, and the Amateur Radio Bands. He shows ground-mounted antennas with and without ATUs (antenna tuning units or "tuners"). These simple antennas are easy to make, inexpensive, and perform well for the resources invested. With an adequate ground radial system, vertical antennas can provide hours of great DX and local chats with your ham radio friends.
