Thanks to "Jez" for this basic introduction to "long wire" receiving antennas.

You can find most of the antenna components in your "junk box" or at your neighborhood hardware store or building supply outlet.

This antenna can also be modified for transmitting on the Amateur Radio HF bands.  But as a simple shortwave receiving antenna, this project will perform very well.

The old Radio Shack DX-384 featured in the video is still a decent receiver for shortwave listening.

Here are some comments from Jez:

In this weeks video we build a simple long wire antenna. You might have the parts sitting there in your shack to build one yourself . This antenna is nice and simple to build so give it a try yourself #long wire antenna #2j4ez #antenna
