Simple Ham Radio Antennas--$20 HF Portable Antenna Project. Post #695.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/leriedzr1Es.  Here's an easily made and versatile portable HF amateur radio antenna that covers the 20 meter, 12 meter, 10 meter, and 11 meter (CB) bands.  This antenna is based on a design by Frank W. King (KM4IE). Most of the antenna materials can be found at a hardware store or building supply outlet.  Initial SWR data indicate that tuning this antenna shouldn't be major issue:  20 meters (14.300 mHz--1.11:1); 12 meters (24.95 mHz--1.23:1); 11 meters (28.4 mHz--1.01:1); and 10 meters (28.4 mHz--1.0:1). Results are pending for 15 meters and 17 meters.  If you use this antenna, be sure to attach a counterpoise wire or a ground radial system. You can get detailed plans for this portable HF Antenna by visiting this website: http://www.arrl.org/files/Technology/tis/info/pdf/00043033.pdf.  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!
