In this video, Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) shows us how to make a simple, cheap, and effective HF antenna for the upcoming ARRL Field Day (23-24 June 2018).  All you need is some wire, a 9:1 balun, a telescoping fiberglass mast, a simple ground radial system, and an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner") to create a portable multiband HF antenna for your next portable or field operation. Kevin says this homemade vertical antenna works very well and will get you on the air quickly with little cost.
