Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Quick and easy field antenna. Post #816.


If you're unable to view this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yH0zKNNGa0s.  If you're "stumped" about a portable antenna to use during the 2016 ARRL Field Day event (25-26 June 2016), here's an idea from Kevin Loughin that may be your answer.  The antenna is simple, easy to build, and does a great job for its size. The antenna use a UnUn (unbalanced to unbalanced) balun to insure a good match between feed line and antenna.  Kevin says this antenna is perfect for QRP operations.  You may want to build one of these antennas for emergency or portable use.  This would make a great stealth antenna as well--easy up and easy down with only a small visual impact.
