Here's another interesting approach for making a portable or emergency HF antenna covering 6 through 80 meters. "Survivalist2008"calls this antenna his "Fishing Reel" antenna because most of the components are stored on a fishing reel and can easily be carried in a backpack. "Survivalist2008" says this homebrewed off-center-fed dipole antenna is stealthy, lightweight, and can fit into a pocket on his knapsack.  In part one of this video, we learn what materials are needed make the antenna and the construction steps necessary to get the antenna operational. In part two, we will continue building the antenna and learn how to maximize its performance in a field operating situation.
