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.
