A top band aerial for small gardens. Post #1385.

A truly inspirational video from Ray of the "Radio Workshop" in the UK.  Many radio amateurs who share the extreme antenna limitations posed by deed or space-restricted homes will find a sympathetic ear in this video.  Rather than surrender to space limiting scenarios, Ray has taken a potential liability (he has only a small garden space for an outdoor antenna) and turned it into a workable alternative to "no antenna at all."  Ray says he was surprised by the  performance of this highly compromised antenna, which gives him a decent signal on 160 meters as well as coverage on frequencies between 80 and 10 meters.  Follow Ray's example and you won't stay off the air for long.
