Thanks to 2E0EZT for this entertaining and thoroughly interesting
discussion of designing, building, and using a simple 20 meter antenna for both home and portable use....lots of good ideas in this presentation.

Here are additional comment from the author:

A quick video following a conversation with a fellow operator about working lightweight SOTA or similar. I own an MP1 SuperAntenna but felt that making a simple wire antenna and a small flag pole could get you onto the lower bands (20m) quite easily and lightweight. I made this antenna during a break while working at home, it tested fine on the analyser and worked very well during a quick deployment at some high ground near home. PLEASE NOTE: the fold over wire (about 90cm) should be kept away from the rest of the wire antenna running the vertical and not allowed to wrap around or touch the vertical run.
