Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Random Wire Solution for an "Interior Shack". Post #539.


If you're having trouble seeing this video, please insert the following URL into your blog search box: https://youtu.be/uxDijG9g0dM.  If you're "antenna challenged" by restrictive HOAs and CC &Rs and you need to keep a low-profile, then a thin, small gauge wire strung to a nearby support or tree, combined with an antenna tuner and a counterpoise system may be what you need to get on the air.  In this video by "stancoyote", we learn how to string up a stealth antenna that is largely invisible to neighbors.  Stan has been using this antenna for some time without being noticed by the neighborhood.  Stan's random wire is 53-feet/16.15 meters long with a 58-foot/17.68 meter counterpoise.  Stan also shows us how to void RFI in the shack with good grounding and counterpoise wires.  This antenna may work for you.  Try it out.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  You can follow our blog community with a free e-mail subscription or by tapping into the blog RSS feed.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
