If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yH0zKNNGa0s.  This is post 2212 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Whether you'll be homebound during the ARRL Field Day in June because of COVID-19 or contemplating a mini-dx pedition of your own (SOTA, IOTA), this simple, easy to make portable antenna from Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) will be a welcome addition to your radio equipment.

As Kevin shows, an easily-made 9:1 UnUn is the key to success for this project.  Here are some additional remarks from Kevin:

"My portable antenna for field day. Quick and easy to put up, great performance, and cheap. What could be better? Here is a link to the commercial UnUn that I used in the video. http://www.balundesigns.com/model-913...
