If you live on a small urban lot, a classic 1/2 wavelength horizontal dipole antenna may be nearly impossible, especially if you have only a 30 foot X 30 foot (9.14 m X 9.14 m) garden in which to "plant" your antenna.

In this video from Tim (2E0TWG), we see how a little ingenuity and creativity can produce a useful doublet antenna capable of serving several amateur radio HF bands.  Tim does an excellent job of describing his antenna, from basic design considerations and construction to actual testing and on-air use.  A thoroughly inspiring project!
