If you enjoy informal QSOs on the 80 Meter Amateur Radio Band, then you need a simple, inexpensive NVIS antenna to bring daytime contacts alive.
Thanks to Tim Carter (W3ATB), we see just how easy it is to talk with your fellow hams using this ultra-simple antenna.
This NVIS (near vertical incidence skyway) antenna is also a good HF emergency antenna, providing usable communications out to approximately 300 miles/486 kilometers.
Don't expect long-range DX contacts with a NVIS antenna. But, for local, state, and regional HF communications, you can't beat this classic antenna design.
Thanks for joining us today.
