7 and 28 MHz HF Pedestrian Mobile with 6 meters of wire

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqJrm0OffiM.  This is post 2234 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Pedestrian mobile is an interesting way to expand your Amateur/Ham Radio horizons. All you need are about 6 meters/19.68 feet of wire, a telescoping fiberglass mast, a homemade antenna "tuner", and a portable HF transceiver.

In this video from Australian radio amateur Peter Parker (VK3YE), we see a simple antenna made from locally available parts. Peter designed the antenna as a 1/8 wavelength 40 meter antenna and a 5/8 wavelength 10 meter antenna.  Proximity to a large body of water (such as beach or lake) will help your signal immensely.
