Thanks to Brian (K4BBL) for this enlightening, clever, and ultimately cheap HF antenna for portable or emergency use.

Brian uses some surplus computer cable and a few items found locally to make this simple HF antenna.  Brian says the homebrew antenna works very well.

Here are some of his comments:

"I made a NorCal doublet HF antenna from scrap computer cable using this plan: http://norcalqrp.org/norcaldoublet.htm I set it up in a park with my Xeigu X-5105 radio and made some contacts."
