5 Min Emergency Antenna. Post 2030.

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"?
