This is post 2346 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

In this video, Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) show us how to make an ultra-simple antenna to receive VLF signals.  Now that radio amateurs can use the 630 and 2200 meter VLF bands, this short explanation of the "Ground Spike Antenna" may be helpful in peaking your interest in the world beneath the medium wave AM Broadcast Band.

Here are some of Kevin's comments:
