This is post 2579 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Whether you use a stealth antenna or have a non-restricted antenna site, the problem of antenna support is a constant issue that must be solved.  

In this video from Callum McCormick (M0MCX), we discover several inexpensive and "stealthy" ways to support our HF wire antennas without drawing attention from our neighbors.

Here are some comments from Callum:

Great tip for getting stealthy height for your wire antennas. Particularly useful for folks who don't have trees strategically placed. Aluminium Scaffold Tubes slip inside Sail Board / Wind Surf Masts. Then you can paint to suit. Cheap, economical and structurally sound. Background: My name is Callum, callsign M0MCX. The whole DX Commander brand was a bit of an "accident" since I already have 2 day-jobs (I own a couple of tech companies). Everything I make, I use myself. My products are the answer to *my* problems so I made stuff that worked for me. I don't make gear that doesn't work and although I'm considered not short of a few dollars, I love the idea of making things economical, easy to build and as efficient as you can achieve on a tight budget (hey, I hate wasting money!). My store is here: and I ship (almost) worldwide. Russia seems to be too expensive however EU, USA, Canada and VK land still make my products economical when you include shipping. Hey. Did you know that you can help the others here by contributing your time to closed caption subtitles here: Enjoy your radio folks. Good luck. Callum. M0MCX. DX Commander Founder.
