Here's a simple, low cost, and easy to build vertical antenna suitable for both home use and portable operations. The MicroVert is based on a design developed by Jurgen Schafer (DL7PE). As built, the MicroVert is a short, base-loaded antenna that uses the coax shield as a counterpoise. While the Microvert doesn't perform as well as a dipole antenna, it can get you on the air where large antennas are not suitable or allowed.
