Field Testing Vertical Antennas for Ham Radio, Post #1465.

Vertical antennas are a good choice for many portable and home ham radio stations. But, how well do these antennas actually perform in the field?  In this video, N5CFB, KG5PWA, and K5ACL test three popular vertical antenna designs.  While all antennas performed well, some were easier to match and operate than others.  Interesting "live" test.
