Survival Radio Antennas 1: The coax only antenna

Every radio amateur should have an emergency antenna for unexpected events or disasters.

In this video from Brett of the "SurvivalComms" video channel, we see how a length of coaxial cable and a few basic tools can get you on the air without much effort.  

Your "sleeve dipole" antenna is perfect for communications drill and portable operations.  Make one today and place it in your vehicle or near your home station.

Here are some comments from Brett:

First in a series of easy to build field expedient antennas that will save your bacon. Using a damaged hank of coax we build a simple antenna using just a multitool and cordage. Build skills , save money, have fun . For our metric system viewers : 1/2 wavelength formula 144/Fmhz = 1/2 wavelength in meters #survivalcomms #survivalradio #survivalantenna


Thanks for joining us today.
