How to build a cheap inverted "L" antenna

If you're short on space for a full-sized horizontal dipole or vertical antenna, please try this design from Clint of the "Oxford Shortwave Log" video channel.

This design is based on work done by Leo Paget (GM0ONX).

The inverted "L" antenna is easy to make and and costs very little if you can find materials locally.

Here are some comments from Clint:

Hi there, now that I'm a radio ham, I've been looking for ways to set up an HF rig with a decent antenna in a relatively small garden. Here is a design for a very straightforward Inverted L antenna, constructed from cheap parts that can be quite easily assembled in a day. The tuneable whip antenna I purchased for HF doesn't really work in a built up area and requires a superb ground plane that I can't easily provide. Kudos and thanks to Len Paget GM0ONX for the excellent article featuring this design (Practical Wireless February 2004) Thanks for watching.

Thanks for joining us today.
