Thanks to Tim (G5TM) for this helpful tutorial on designing, making, and using simple portable HF antennas.  These inexpensive antennas are suitable for both at-home use and field operations.

Here are some general comments from Tim:

Do you want to make a simple HF antenna using nothing but coax? Well today at the 2021 YouTubers Hamfest, I speak with Tim G5TM as he shares his experiences on building HF antennas, running portable, mobile and the fun to be had during the Sporadic E season. These HF antennas are simple to build and an easy way to get on the air!
