Simple Ham Radio Antennas--5 Min Emergency Antenna. Post # 898.

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: This project from Jerry H. Kolins (K2PFW) will get you on the air in minutes. This emergency antenna reminds me of a "sleeve dipole" where the outer shield of the coaxial cable serves as the "other half" of a dipole.  In effect, the coaxial antenna becomes a vertical dipole.  A good, useful antenna that could be used almost anywhere, including HOA/CC&R controlled housing.  Make one now and keep it as a spare antenna in your "go kit."
