Thanks to Jonathan Charles and his fellow radio amateurs for conducting this "Field Test" of four popular HF antennas, including the classic dipole, End Fed Halfwave (EFHW), the Vertical, and the popular Windom antenna. This video gives you an excellent idea of what these antennas can do under portable or emergency operations. Of course, each antenna has its strengths and weaknesses. The thing to remember is to make the best antenna you can with the materials available.
