If you're thinking about using a different kind of antenna for the next ARRL Field Day or for a portable DX-Pedition of your own, you can't go wrong with this simple, easy to erect dipole from "HamRadioFun.com."
Gerald (KF5JNU) used one of these compact, inexpensive antennas during the 2014 ARRL Field Day. He does a good job of explaining the theory, set up, and use of this portable antenna. You can configure the antenna in many ways, ranging from a straight horizontal dipole to slopers and inverted vees. Even if you don't use this antenna all the time, it will make a perfect companion for your ham radio "go-kit".
