Simple Ham Radio Antennas--My Portable HF ham radio antenna. Post #596.

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert into your browser search box. A nice, down-to-earth description of a simple, practical, and easily made portable or emergency antenna.  In this video, "YeOldeScience" shows us how to use two spools of "camping clothes line" wire to make a multiband dipole.  This 18-gauge wire can be bought at any store that sells camping equipment. also sells a similar product.  This antenna resembles a commercial antenna called the "Yo-Yo", which can be spooled out to various lengths to suit whatever band you wish to work.  This homebrewed antenna is surprisingly tough and can be packed into a pelican case with your QRP rig, battery, and various tools for a truly portable station.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  You can follow our blog community with a free email subscription or by tapping into the blog RSS feed.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
