Best Ham Radio Antenna for Small Spaces
If you're looking for a compact, simple HF antenna for restricted spaces, then this "shorty-forty" design from Dennis (AD6DM), "TheSmokinApe", is for you.
The key to this antenna project is the use of a 49:1 balun with a proper length of wire. Dennis takes us step-by-step through the design, construction, and testing phases of this end-fed antenna.
