The best QRP portable DX antenna

If you want a low angle, QRP portable DX antenna, please consider this modified "Bobtail Curtain" design from Australian Amateur Radio operator Peter Parker (VK3YE).

The antenna is easy to make for HF bands from 14 MHz to 28 MHz.  The antenna can be made from locally available materials.

Here are some comments from Peter (VK3YE):

A great antenna for HF portable QRP DX. Consider it if you want a low radiation angle for DX, don't have very tall masts and wish to operate on or near a conductive surface.
