This is one of the better video tutorials on how to design, build, and use a portable vertical antenna for field day or emergency use. Kevin (KB9RLW) covers basic vertical antenna theory and construction practices for this easy to make vertical antenna. As designed, the antenna will cover 20 through 15 meters. You may want to make this antenna for emergency use at your shack or for your vehicle "Go-Kit". A "tuner" is recommended for 10 meters and 30 meters.
