If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0LkXnEZ0Nk.  This is post 2263 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to Australian radio amateur Alex (VK2PRC) for this step-by-step guide to making a 20 meter half wave end fed vertical antenna.  This antenna doesn't require much space and can be built for a modest cost.

According to Alex, the antenna directs most of its energy toward the horizon at an angle of approximately 15-degrees--excellent for DX contacts.

Here are some comments from Alex:
