$20 HF Portable Antenna Project. Post #1065.


If you can't view this video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=leriedzr1Es.

Here's a simple, inexpensive HF Portable Antenna that covers  20 meters (14.300 MHz), 12 meters (24.95 MHz), 11 meters (27.205 MHz), and 10 meters (28.400 MHz)...all with a SWR lower than 1.2 to 1.  The antenna is based on a design from Frank W. King (KM4IE).  Although there is no voice description of the antenna project, the photos, parts list, and operational details are clear enough. This antenna can be used in portable/emergency situations, as well as in areas where antennas are restricted.
