In this video, NG9D offers a simple end-fed halfwave antenna suitable for 80 meter portable and emergency operations. Most of the signal radiated by this antenna is high angle, making it ideal for Near Vertical Skywave applications (NVIS). NG9D provides necessary construction details, theory of operation, and a brief demonstration of how the antenna works in the field. A nice, simple, inexpensive antenna that should be included in your "go kit."
