Simple Ham Radio Antennas--W5TOM Field & Emergency Antennas. Post #848.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMwRZVi-IOA.  If you need a cheap, effective emergency antenna for portable or home operations, then this video from Tom Morton (W5TOM) may help you reach that goal.  In this video, Tom discusses the various pieces of equipment you'll need to assemble and build an emergency antenna that is cheap, durable, and effective. Tom reviews several antenna "tuners" that will help you match the antenna to your rig, offers suggestions on wire sources, describes several antenna launching schemes, and offers several coaxial connectors that will help you interconnect your equipment to the antenna.  Tom then demonstrates several designs at a public park and at his home.  An excellent video for antenna experimenters.
