With the ARRL Field Day fast approaching (23-24 June 2018), it's time to consider what kind of antennas will be suitable for your field day site, whether you operate alone or with an amateur radio club.

Emergency and portable antennas should be simple, easy to make, portable, and offer good performance.

Our friends at have compiled a list of what they call "13 Cool Ideas for Your Field Day Antenna."  Most of these antennas can be made in the "field" with commonly available materials.

Here's the list for your consideration:

End fed halfwave antenna for 6/40 meters from EARC--Hawaii's Emergency Amateur Radio Club
Smith Windom Six Band HF Windom Antenna from K3MT.

Vertical Antenna for 20-15-10 m from F5ZV.
