Here's another fascinating antenna that can be used either at home or in portable or emergency situations.  You may want to make one for the 2017 ARRL Field Day, set for Saturday and Sunday, 24-25 June 2017.

Alexander Grachev (UA6AGW) takes you step-by-step through the design, building, and operational phases of this intriguing antenna.  The antenna combines an internal circular loop with a diamond-shaped outer loop to cover several HF Amateur Radio bands.  There are several excellent photographs, graphs, and antenna measurements to help you build this antenna.

According to Alexander, "this antenna was designed for installation in field conditions or limited space at a low height mast."  The antenna "does not require guys and takes small room for installation."

At a height of 4 meters/13.12 feet, the antenna delivered good day time coverage with low noise.

Have some fun and build this compact, efficient antenna.
