Fascinating very long, high gain cheap wire antennas
An interesting look at the theoretical and practical considerations of very long wire antennas.
Callum (M0MCX) does a good job of explaining the pros and cons of these oversized antennas. Antennas, such as the classic Beverage Antenna, are excellent receiving tools for a wide variety of signals. Beverage Antennas are mostly used for receiving.
Callum also touches upon the disadvantages of transmitting on long wire antennas, and describes the equipment needed to make these antennas usable for amateur radio transmissions.
