If you enjoy portable operations and find it difficult to contact stations on 80 meters, you may want to make a NVIS (near vertical incident skywave) antenna covering this great "rag chew" and daytime regional band. In this video, Gil (Commsprepper) shows us how to make a simple NVIS antenna that delivers excellent local, state, and regional coverage up to 400 miles/648 km.  This video shows Gil's 135-foot/41.15 meters NVIS antenna suspended over a wooden bridge.  He reports excellent local and regional coverage from this simple installation. Eighty meters is an excellent band for portable and local emergency operations.
