Using a mobile HF Antenna in a fixed location

If you live in deed-restricted housing or have little or no room for a regular HF antenna, a mobile HF Antenna could get you on the air with minimum expense.

In this presentation from David Casler (KE0OG), we learn how a small mobile HF Antenna can be used in otherwise difficult conditions to give you a way to get and stay on the air.  

David offers both a theoretical and practical approach to using mobile HF Antennas as home-based antennas.
