Rusty (N0KTZ) has done an excellent job of showing how to erect a portable HF antenna during a field outing in the mountains. His set up is simple, effective, and fairly stealthy. Materials for his antenna launcher and wire holder are available at your neighborhood building supply outlet You can't beat a simple slingshot, fishing line, and sinkers for launching your HF antenna above nearby trees. You may want to practice with your slingshot before launching your portable HF antenna. Rusty takes you step-by-step through the launch sequence. Well-done video with many helpful suggestions.
