How to build an Inverted L for low-bands. Ham Radio Antennas made easy. Post 1931.

Now that HF propagation is favoring the lower amateur/ham radio bands (160m, 80m, and 40m), you may want to design, build, and test an inverted L antenna.

In this video, Callum (M0MCX) shows us how to build a simple antenna for the lower HF bands--in this case an inverted L for 80 meters.  The antenna has a small footprint, is easy to build and tune, and remains fairly inexpensive. 

As Callum points out, the basic 80 meter inverted L provides decent DX and local coverage, too.   Used with an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner"), this antenna can also be used on 40 meters through 10 meters.
