Simple Ham Radio Antennas--3 minute portable HF vertical antenna. Post #714.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/RIvW9f--JOI.  Here's an interesting challenge from Peter Parker (VK3YE).  Can you unpack and set up a portable vertical antenna in 3 minutes or less?  The key to this solution is having a telescoping 9 meter mast, 10 meters of wire, a decent ground radial or counterpoise system, and a L-match antenna coupler (tuner).  This quick set-up antenna would be perfect for portable or emergency operations.  Lots of good ideas here!  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.
