A nice, simple video tutorial from Darrell Steele (VO1MDS) of St. Johns, Newfoundland, Canada.  In this video, Darrel uses a 16-foot/4.878 meters telescoping aluminium rod, a tapped coil, a coaxial cable feed line, and a simple ground rod to build a vertical antenna covering the 40, 20, 15, and 12 meter Amateur Radio bands.  Bands are selected by changing the tap on the coil.
