This is post 2614 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Like it close cousin SOTA (Summits On The Air), POTA (Parks On The Air) continues to grow in popularity among radio amateurs.

SOTA and POTA "expeditions" give radio amateurs a valuable lesson on how to operate during emergency or portable situations.

In this video from Michael Martens (KB9VBR), we see how a portable field operation can be assembled in a short time.

Please note the use of a "linked dipole antenna" for this POTA adventure.  This antenna is well-suited for both home and portable operations.

Here are some comments from Michael:

It was a good weekend to head north and build an antenna. For this Parks on the Air (POTA) Activation I'm at K-7260 which is the Northern Highlands American Legion State Forest. I'm building an 40/20 meter linked dipole using the dipole center insulator that I put together in the previous video.
