Ham radio 40 meter homebrew ground mount vertical


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qEQN_FV0Pk.  This is post 2079 in a continuing series of simple, homemade ham radio antennas.

Thanks to Ric (K8YIO) for this simple, elegant 40 meter vertical antenna for your backyard.  This antenna will cover 40 and 15 meters without a "tuner".  A transmatch (i.e. "tuner") will allow coverage of 20 meters and 10 meters.

The key to this antenna is a good ground radial or counterpoise system.  Lay down as many radial wires as you can to help boost performance and reduce ground losses.
