Here's a simple, effect portable antenna suitable for field operations and emergency work. The antenna is ultra simple, using commonly available PVC pipe for supports, surplus wire for a radial ground system, and a steel whip from an electrical supply store or online from a variety of amateur radio outlets. As configured in this video, this whip can be used on 20, 17, 15, and 10 meters.
