The giant Collins HF discone antenna at the Titan Missile Museum



Thanks to Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) for this fascinating tour of the massive Collins HF Discone Antenna at the Titan Missile Museum.  While not a simple HF antenna by any means, it remains a fascinating part of our Amateur Radio history.

The video may encourage you to build your own discone antenna (perhaps for VHF and UHF operations.).
