Going around in circles 1: An attempt at an end-fed vertical beam antenna. Post 1803.

Here's another antenna idea which is both simple to make and even easier to set up and take down.  In this video, Australian radio amateur Peter Parker (VK3YE) experiments with a homebrew end-fed vertical beam antenna for the 10 meter amateur radio band (28 MHz).  The antenna works fairly well considering its limitations.  You could modify the antenna into a phased vertical antenna system or convert some extra wire into a half-square antenna for additional directivity and gain.  A nice, simple, inexpensive antenna for portable and at-home use.
