Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Ham Radio MARS Counter Poise Ground Saturn Dipole Antenna

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your search box:  This easy to understand video from shows how adding a simple counterpoise or radial ground system can greatly enhance the quality of an antenna.  A good ground radial system is especially important for vertical antennas, since the radial system supplies "the missing half" of a vertical antenna system.  The intent of the video is to show that radials do make a difference in antenna performance.  I'll cover the "nuts and bolts" of ground radial systems in a future post.  But, for now, this video gives you an indication of just how important a ground radial system is to most antennas.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  Thanks for joining us today!
