Ham Radio 10 Meter Ground Plane Antenna. Post #1286.

In this video from Dave Tadlock (KG0ZZ), we get a step-by-step tutorial on how to design, build, and use a 10 meter ground plane antenna.  The antenna can be supported on a mast using a simple counterpoise as the ground plane or as a ground-mounted vertical employing a ground radial system.  In my experience, mounting the antenna at a height of approximately 1/2 wavelength (16.5 feet/5/03 meters) above ground level,along with a simple counterpoise or drooping radial system will give better performance than leaving the antenna mounted close to the ground.
