7 and 28 MHz HF pedestrian mobile with 6m wire. Post 2064. antenna

Here's another great pedestrian mobile antenna project from Australian ham Peter Parker (VK3YE).  You can either use this antenna while you walk or use it as a temporary antenna during rest stops at picnic tables or camp sites.

Although the antenna is a bit short for 40 meters, it does work fairly well on that band.  Here's Peter's observation:
"Some 7 & 28 MHz HF pedestrian mobile with 6 metres of wire. 6m is barely 1/8 wavelength on 7 MHz but 5/8 wavelength on 28 MHz."
