A Simple Short Vertical HF Antenna. Post 1915.

Here's an excellent example of what can be done with a very short HF vertical in a portable or field operation.

In this video, "RadioPrepper" uses a 6 m/19.68 ft telescoping fiberglass fishing pole to support 19 ft/5.79 m of antenna wire.  The key to the success this antenna is the EARCHI 9:1 UNUN.  On this day, an Elecraft KX2 was able to reach Sweden for a QSO.  Notice how a complete ham station was carried in a small plastic case, making this arrangement perfect for an impromptu field operation.
