Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Pedestrian mobile HF antenna

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: This is post #980 in a continuing series on Simple Ham Radio Antennas.

An interesting facet of HF operations is pedestrian mobile--something that is constrained by antenna size and weight. I never liked the idea of walking on a public beach or through a public park dragging a ground radial system with me.

In this video, Peter Parker (VK3YE) adopts an idea from the commercially available "Mini Whip" Antenna and makes it work successfully for pedestrian mobile operations--perfect for fun, portable operations, and emergency work.

This antenna probably would be useful for radio amateurs living in housing controlled by HOAs and CC&Rs.
