HF Ham Radio Random Wire Portable Antenna Back Yard. Post #1564.

A properly designed and built random wire antenna makes an excellent portable or emergency antenna.  In this video, Larry (WD0AKX) shows us how he set up a simple, backyard ham station using only the materials found in his shack.  All you need is a rig (in this case Elecraft KX-3), an antenna "tuner", a unun matching unit, a random length of wire, a power supply, and a simple ground radial or counterpoise system.  To choose a suitable random length of wire for the antenna, please visit this website:  http://udel.edu/~mm/ham/randomwire/.  Good luck with this simple, fun to use antenna.
