Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Backward Inverted L Antenna. Post #750


If you're unable to view this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/SOpdXHnzwIA.  Here's another interesting antenna idea from Stan Gibilisco (W1GV)--something he calls a "Backward Inverted L Antenna."  While this antenna is designed primarily for receiving purposes, it can be modified to transmit on all amateur radio bands between 160 to 10 meters.  As with all verticals, a good ground radial or counterpoise system is necessary. I've built a few of these antennas and they work very well on 160 meters and on the MW standard broadcast band.  You can also use this antenna for general short wave listening when your amateur radio activity is done for the day.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
