Another great antenna for stealth operations or for areas with limited space is the classic Inverted L Antenna. In this video from Craig Sheppard, we see a simple, efficient antenna approximately 58-feet/17.68 meters long and 24-feet/7.31 meters high at the branch supporting the horizontal part of the antenna. Craig says the Inverted L is tied off between 6-feet/1.82 meters and 7-feet/2.13 meters above ground off the far end of the antenna. Craig adds that the antenna works very well, with his most recent contact being Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean using the JT65 digital mode.
