Using a wire fence as an HF antenna. Post #1655.

Almost any metal object can be used to receive HF signals--in this case, we find a wire fence pressed into service as a random length wire RECEIVING antenna.  The operating position consists of a Yaesu FT-817 and a MFJ 16010 L-match "tuner".  Transmitting with this antenna could present some safety and equipment problems, although this operator didn't mention any difficulties in getting the fence to work.  Antenna experimentation can be a learning experience if safety procedures are followed.
