This is post 2567 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.
Now that solar cycle 25 is underway, HF propagation should show some improvement over the next few years.
This would be a perfect time to build an inexpensive, basic 10 meter ground plane antenna. Ten meter operations can be quite exciting once propagation supports signals in the 28 MHz Amateur Radio Band.
In this video from Dave Tadlock (KG0ZZ), we get a thorough step-by-step tutorial on how to design, build, and test a 10 meter ground plane antenna.
Even if propagation is weak, you can use 10 meters for local nets and mobile operations.
Here are some of Dave's comments:
Thanks for joining us today.
