An end-fed long wire coupled to a 9:1 balun and a decent "counterpoise" or ground radial system makes an excellent portable or home-based antenna. In this video from "Tinker John" (W5CYF), we learn how to build an easy, inexpensive, and lightweight 9:1 UnUn for a long wire antenna. By following the steps shown in this video, you'll have a durable 9:1 UnUn in only a few hours. This would make an excellent weekend project.
