Portable Ham Radio Antenna. Post #1142.

Here's another simple multiband HF portable antenna using common materials found at your nearest hardware store or home improvement outlet.  The antenna support is a common telescoping painter's pole.  Just add a dipole for each band of interest, separate each antenna by a few inches, hook up a convenient length of 50 ohm coaxial cable, add a choke balun and an antenna "tuner" if desired, and you're ready to go.  An excellent emergency and portable antenna for field operations.
