Here's part 2 of an 80-6 meter OCF Dipole Antenna created by "Survivalist2008".

In part 1, we collected the materials for the project and began construction of the antenna.  In part 2, we put the finishing touches on this antenna, erect it in the field, and make some contacts. The antenna is lightweight, stealthy, and compact. You may want to make one for your next portable or backpacking operation.  You could always use this antenna to back up the antennas you now use at your home station.
