Simple Ham Radio Antennas--5 Min Emergency Antenna. Post #671.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this address into your browser search box: https:youtu.be/XgyH6JQ3XHo.  If you need a simple, effective, and fairly cheap antenna in a hurry, then this homebrew coaxial antenna from K2PFW may be what you're looking for.  The antenna is similar to a "sleeve dipole", where the outer shield becomes the "other half" of a regular dipole in the vertical position.  This antenna will provide an omnidirectional signal and is suitable for both emergency and portable use.  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 email subscription or by tapping into the blog RSS feed.  Thanks for joining us today!
