Simple Ham Radio Antennas--$20 HF Portable Antenna Project. Post #888


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ieriedzr1Es.  Here's a simple, effective, and inexpensive HF antenna based on a design from Frank King (KM4IE).  Most of the materials for this project can be found at your nearest home improvement outlet or hardware store. Some of the antenna items can be found at Radio Shack stores still open or through various ham radio supply houses.  The antenna is basically a vertical helix coupled with a loading coil.  This antenna is suitable for portable and emergency use, as well as use as a "stealth antenna" for housing controlled through HOAs and CC&Rs.
