Simple Ham Radio Antennas--2 minute portable HF vertical antenna: Using velcro tape for mounting. Post #484.


Fascinating video by VK3YE on how to raise a simple fiberglass mast and attach it to a support using velcro tape.  The antenna can be a pure vertical with a ground radial system or an inverted V dipole.  The mast can be attached with a variety of items, including velcro tape, cable ties, Duct Tape, or even a few large eleastic bands used to secure camping gear.  This quick-erect HF vertical antenna is perfect for camping, portable operations, or emergency service.  Nice, compact system.
