Speaker Wire 44' Doublet Antenna. Post 2081.

Here's another great HF antenna for those with small urban lots or for those who enjoy operations in the field.

Craig Sheppard has done a good job of showing how surplus wire and a few common parts can get you on the air with a multiband HF antenna. 

Craig gives this quick outline of this homebrew antenna:

This is a quick look at my portable 40m-10m 44' doublet antenna made from speaker wire, milk bottle cap insulators, a crappie pole, and hiking poles.


Although 44 feet/13.41 m seems a bit short for 40-through 10 meter coverage, Craig's antenna seems to do the job.  Be sure to have an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner") to facilitate tuning and SWR reduction.
