This antenna takes about 10 minutes to erect. It uses a 5 metre squid pole purchased from Haverfords (Haverfordwest.com.au). I have used it now for a few park activations and it performs well with the 20 radials. I have cut the driven wire element to be resonant at approx 14.185MHz.

Thanks for joining us today.
