Backyard Inverted-L Antenna. Post #1484.


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wq4A9skU3Zs.

Here's a simple inverted-L antenna that works well between 40 and 10 meters.  According to Craig Sheppard, the antenna is about 58 feet/17.68 meters long and 24 feet/7.31 meters high at the branch supporting the top of the antenna.  The longer section is terminated at a post  between 6-7 feet/1.87-2.13 meters high at the far end.  Don't forget to install a good ground radial or counterpoise system to maximize efficiency and reduce RFI and SWR.
