ham radio HF wire antenna projects. Post 1784.


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8hv1iLTUM8.

It's amazing what you can make with just a few feet of wire, a few connectors, ceiling hooks, tape, and some creativity.

In this video, we see a few examples of HF wire antennas which can be made from locally available materials.  This video does a good job of showing the construction details of an inverted Vee "Slinky" antenna, a modified half square antenna for 20 meters, and an indoor two-turn HF loop.

Getting on the air may be as close as your garage, storage room, and the proverbial "junk box" kept by most radio amateurs.  Don't be afraid to experiment with homebrew antenna designs.  That's part of the fund of being a ham radio operator.
