The best portable antenna you've probably never heard of
Thanks to Australian radio amateur Peter Parker (VK3YE) for this excellent tutorial on the pros and cons of the "Bobtail Curtain" antenna--a wonderful choice for low-angle DX contacts.
Although some construction expertise is needed for this antenna, the results far outweigh the time and effort used to design, make, and use this innovative antenna design.
I've been impressed with "Bobtails" and "Half-Squares" since my earliest radio experiences during ARRL Field Day events. You'll be surprised how the higher HF bands (15-10 meters) come alive with these innovative antennas.
