Although the ARRL Field Day doesn't occur until the last full weekend of June, you may want to make a few antennas and test them before this popular contest. In fact, some Amateur Radio Clubs are participating in several unofficial "Winter Field Day" events to practice before the main contest.
In this video, we see a simple, easy, and inexpensive way to get on the 10 meter amateur radio band with materials you may already have in your shack. Similar antennas can be built for 40, 20, 15, and 10 meters and set up in the same way as this video.
