Long Wire Antenna. Post 1933.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lO_h1bqmmY.

Here's another fascinating antenna video from Denis (VE3BF).

In this video, Denis shows us how to make an efficient, inexpensive, and simple HF long wire antenna for both home and portable use.

The key to Denis's long wire antenna is a 9:1 UnUn which solves much of the antenna-feed line mismatch found in such antennas.  A good antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner") and a simple ground radial or counterpoise system will improve the performance of this antenna.

Denis does a good job of explaining the concept, construction techniques, and tuning of this antenna.
