A phased vertical array on 20 meters can give you a boost in gain and directivity on this popular amateur radio band. Bob (VK5FO) gives you a "walk through" of this antenna and a description of the end-fire phased array consisting of 2X 1/4 wave elevated ground plane antennas. This antenna would make an excellent field day or contest antenna. Most of the materials can be bought at the nearest home improvement outlet or neighborhood hardware store.
