SOTA Antenna Ideas. Post #1059.

If you need a simple, easily deployable HF antenna, then antennas designed for the Summits On The Air Program (SOTA) may be for you.  In this video from John Saunders (VK4BZ), we see a variety of easy-to-erect and effective HF antennas for portable or emergency use.  With the use of a telescoping fiberglass mast, a variety of antennas, from simple dipoles to verticals can be designed, built, erected, and used in minimum time--something that may interest those living in deed-restricted homes and apartments.  Add a simple LC network and you'll have an antenna with low SWR and acceptable performance.
