HF Antenna when traveling

 Here are some great portable HF Antenna ideas from K7SW.

Most of the materials for this project can be obtained from local sources or from your "junk box" of extra parts.

The keys to this antenna system are a portable fiber glass mast, common house wire, an appropriate length of 50-ohm coaxial cable, and an antenna transmatch (i.e. "antenna tuner").
