This is post 2494 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.
If you want the most stealthy HF antenna in your neighborhood, please try this idea from Gil of the "RadioPreppers.com" youtube channel. On-the-ground antennas have been used by radio amateurs for years with varying results.
In this video, Gil tests the concept during the daytime on 80 meters.
Given the right conditions, such antennas can perform very well. Mike Toia (K3MT) developed the "Grasswire Antenna" for portable and emergency use. Just enter "K3MT Grasswire Antenna" into Google Search to find out how Mike made this antenna work.
With a little luck, you'll soon have the ultimate stealth HF antenna...out of sight, out of mind.
Thanks for joining us today.
