If you want an inexpensive, easy-to-build 20 meter vertical antenna for portable or emergency use, then this homebrew vertical designed by Denis (VE3BF) may be what you need.

Denis takes you step-by-step through the design, building, and testing phase of this remarkably simple antenna.  Denis also supplies a list of materials which can be used to make this "field operations" antenna.

Here's what you'll need to make this antenna:

An 8-foot/2.43 meters fence rail.
A TV roof top tripod.
A 1/2 in/1.27 cm to 3/4 in/1.905 cm diameter galvanized conduit pipe.
A 6 in X 9 in/15.24 cm X 22.86 cm cedar board.
4 pipe saddle clamps.
2 hose clamps.
One 108 in/274.32 cm stainless steel whip.
LDG RU-4:1 balun.
75 feet/2.86 meters of #14 AWG wire.
