An inverted L antenna is an alternative HF antenna choice if you can't support a full halfwave dipole on your property. In this video, Craig Sheppard shows us his simple inverted L antenna, which has made some excellent DX contacts as well as good ragchews from around his home. Craig's antenna consists of an 58-ft/17.68 meters horizontal element and a 24-ft /7.31 meters vertical section. Please note the use of a counterpoise wire to complete the antenna circuit. A good, basic antenna that will bring you many hours of enjoyment.
