This is part 2 of "survivalist2008's" 80-6 meter OCF Dipole Antenna for portable or emergency use.  Now that design, construction, and assembly are complete, we are ready to use the OCF dipole in an actual portable operation.  According to "survivalist2008", the homebrewed OCF Dipole Antenna is "stealthy, and lightweight, and fits into a pocket of the backpack." This antenna could also be useful for radio amateurs living in deed-restricted homes or apartments.
