Here are some general comments from Tim and Hayden:

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! Check out Tim's YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZSa...
