This is post 2424 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Do you need a simple, efficient, and highly portable antenna for the 6 Meter Amateur Radio Band?  If the answer is yes, then this Japanese-designed "Hentenna" from VK5LA is for you.

Here are some comments from VK5LA:

Hi, I needed a quick and dirty 6 Meter antenna for portable and field day. Internet research came up with this...so I built it. The centre support mast is a 6 meter long collapsable "squid pole" fishing rod (only extended about half), and the spreaders top and bottom are 10mm wooden dowels. Imagine an 8 metre rectangle loop of wire (3+3+1+1 =8) suspended by the dowels and fed about .1 wavelength up from the bottom wire..viola!!! Try http://www.hamuniverse.com/hentenna.html

Thanks for joining us today.
