Thanks to OM0ET for this fascinating video.  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. A MicroVert calculator can be found here:  https://lowreal.net/2013/microvert/.

  1. I redid the calculations according to those presented by DL7PE ... the length of the radiant is half compared to those on lowreal ....?
