Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Deployment Of The Alpha Multiband Antenna And Heavy Duty Tripod 6-23-2016


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please enter this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FAoK32BL4MQ.  If you need a strong, easily-assembled, and compact portable or emergency antenna, then the new Alpha Multiband Vertical Antenna may be what you're looking for.  In this video from "videosbymike", we see how easy it is to unpack, assemble, and use this antenna in a portable operation.  In this case, mike sets up his portable operation at the New Smyrna Beach in Florida and gets some interesting contacts using his Yaesu FT-857D and the LDG YT-100 auto tuner. The antenna comes with a tripod, a field bag, an aluminum MIL-SPEC mast, mast sections, a jaws mount, active wire, elements, and a counterpoise.
