Australian radio amateur Peter Parker (VK3YE) is well known for his work with portable HF antennas.  In this presentation before the Eastern and Mountain Radio Club, Peter discusses various antennas suitable for HF Pedestrian Portable Operation.  Peter offers a wealth of suggestions regarding antennas, batteries, radios, and support structures that will facilitate "radio on the go".  Especially interesting is the explanation of his bamboo pole-supported Slim-Jim antenna for 20 meters and his small, hand-held loop antenna.  A great presentation.
