If you need to erect a portable HF vertical antenna for the 40 meter amateur radio band in 5 minutes or less, then this video from John Saunders may be what you need.  By pre-assembling the parts beforehand and storing them in your vehicle, you can have a working antenna for any portable or emergency situation.  John shows us how to assemble the antenna in an easy-to-understand, step-by-step process.  You may want to make your vehicle part of the ground system to increase efficiency and reduce rf flow on the outside of the coaxial feed.
