If you have a small yard and don't have room for a full-sized HF dipole antenna, N4TMA may have a solution for your.  N4TMA made this video for a friend, showing how a bit of ingenuity, some old CB antennas, some extra wire, a few mounts, and other material available locally can get you on the air with a decent signal.  If you're willing to accept a few trade offs in terms of power, bandwidth, and efficiency, you can have a functioning HF antenna ready for your next QSO in just a few hours. Remember the old saying:  "A compromise antenna is better than no antenna."
