Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Part 1 - Ham Radio Antenna Radials. Post #676.


If you're having difficulty  viewing this video, please insert this address into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/1qEnBtWV-6c.  One of the important things to remember about installing a ground-mounted HF vertical antenna is to provide for a good ground radial system.  The ground radial system supplies "the missing half" of your vertical monopole.  A good DC ground system may not be a good RF ground system.  In part 1 of this 2-part series, "hamradiocrazy" shows us how he installed a support base for his Hustler 4BTV HF vertical, how he planned his radial field incorporating the DX Engineering ground radial plate, and how he laid out his wire for the radial system.  Excellent tutorial.  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!
