Long Wire Antenna Build

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RU0DhCkglfw.  This is post 2201 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to 2J4EZ for this ultra-simple, "quick and dirty", cheap, and highly portable random length long wire antenna.  You can build this easy antenna with materials you already have in your "junk box" or from the nearest hardware-building supply outlet.

Should you desire to use this antenna for transmitting, you would require much more attention to a ground radial system and the proper matching of the high impedance long wire to the low impedance of  your receiver/transmitter.

However, as an emergency or expedient antenna, the project will do the job.  Experiment and see what happens.
