If you want to try a new antenna for the upcoming ARRL Field Day on 23-24 June 2018, try some of these simple, inexpensive 6 meter antennas.  Depending on solar activity and propagation, the "Magic Band (50 MHz)" can offer some suprising DX.  These portable 6 meter antennas can be used at home or in the field.

Here are the six antenna projects for the "Magic Band":

6 meter J-Pole by W8CWE.
50 MHz, 6-element yagi by G3PR.
The Six Meter OCF Sleeve Dipole Vertical by N1GY
K0FF's 6 meter sloper.
7-element Quad for 50 MHz by SP5LGN.
6 meter Moxon Rectangle Antenna by KG4JJH.

Good luck on your new antenna!
