The ARRL Field Day emergency communications exercise and contest is coming to a site near you on the last full weekend of June 2018 (23-24 June). Why not build a simple, inexpensive, and effective antenna for your Field Day operation?
The antenna experts at https://www.dxzone.com have compiled a list of five multiband wire antennas that will keep your log book full of contacts, whether or not you operate contest style during that weekend.
Here are the five multiband antennas you should consider for your next portable or field operation:
The W5GI Mystery Antenna. This antenna is similar to the popular G5RV, but is a better performer, especially on 20 meters.
The 6-band Windom Antenna from ON4AA. This trapless off-center-fed dipole works well on 80, 40, 30, 20, 15, and 10 meters.
The VK5AH-HF 4 Bander Dipole. This antenna is a good choice for 80, 40, 20, and 15 meters.
The dual band wire beam for 17 and 12 meters from Allen Baker (KG4JJH). This antenna is a Moxon configuration that works especially well on 17 and 12 meters.
The H-Pole Multibeam Antenna from HB9MTN. This vertical antenna can be use on all amateur radio bands between 160 and 10 meters.
Hopefully, this article will give you some new ideas for your home or portable station.
