Building an HF Vertical 1/4 Wavelength Monopole Antenna

If you live in a limited-space environment, such as a small urban lot, you may find this discussion of HF vertical antennas worthwhile.

In this "AmRad Podcast", we learn how to design, build, test, and use a simple 20 meter vertical antenna.

Here are some comments from the video producer:

Today I'm building an HF monopole for 20 meters. I go through a basic formula, for fun we model the antenna in MMANA-GAL, then I show you how I put it together and tune the elements. Stick around until the fireside chat at the end, and I talk a little bit about ground-mounted vs. above-ground monopoles.. and proximity to trees. This should be a lively debate in the comments section ;) Follow more stuff here: @tcurrentsource

Thanks for joining us today.
