Here's a quick and easy way to make an emergency HF antenna for your ham station or for portable operations.
Jerry H. Kolins (K2PFW) shows us how a convenient legth of coaxial cable and a few simple tools can get you on the air in just a few minutes. As Jerry shows, the outer shield of the coax becomes the "other half" of a regular 1/4 wavelength dipole "oriented in the vertical direction."
I've seen this type of antenna often called a "sleeve dipole."
Why not make an emergency antenna for your favorite amateur/ham radio band and keep it in your "go-kit"?
