This is post 2644 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.
Here's another great antenna idea for portable or field use. Thanks to Peter Marx for this ultra-simple 40 meter inverted V antenna. You can achieve multiband HF coverage with an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner").
Why not make this antenna for the upcoming ARRL Field Day?

Thanks for joining us today.
