Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Ham Radio - Using Fiberglass Poles for HF Portable Operation


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/GMxZWvGzfIE.  Nicely done video by Tracy (VK3TWM) on how to use telescoping fiberglass poles for portable antenna supports.  These poles are available from Jackite, MFJ, and a few other outlets.  In this video, Tracy put the fed end of the antenna up high on the pole due to past success with this method.  Others may prefer attaching the feed line at the base of the fiberglass pole. These collapsable poles can be stored in your vehicle or home shack for emergency or portable use.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.
