Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Homebrew 10/20/40m EFHW vertical Antenna "SOTA". Post #629.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this address into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/29CA_IPyg9M.  In this video, 2E0VOV shows us how easy it is to design and build a vertical half wave antenna covering the 10, 20, and 40 meter amateur radio bands.  This antenna closely resembles the popular "Par End fedz" QRP multiband antenna.  The only thing I would add to this otherwise excellent presentation, is a quarter wave counterpoise wire for each band of use. These wires could be attached to the ground lug of the antenna transmatch ("tuner") or at the base of the antenna mast.  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 communit with a free email subscription or by tapping into the blog RSS feed.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
