How To Put Up A Portable Antenna | SOTApole

Thanks to Richard Newstead (G3CWI) for this "step by step guide" to erecting portable antennas using "lightweight telescoping masts."

Richard is the co-founder of the SOTA Program (Summits On The Air), and he brings years of operating in the field to this video.

Richard's presentation is clear, direct, and "down to earth", and is easily understandable by both newly licensed radio amateurs as well as experienced hams.

Here are some comments from Richard (G3CWI):

Lightweight telescopic masts have become the go-to way for supporting antennas for portable ham radio operating. This video shows how one is used to support a dipole antenna. I do not monetise my videos on YouTube so you don't have to watch their adverts. That means that, unlike most others, I earn nothing from my channel. If you would like to encourage me and support my work, feel free to buy me a beer at I always enjoy a beer! If you think my videos might be of interest to others you are welcome to mention them in any ham radio internet groups that you belong to.. This will help my channel to grow. Thanks! 73 Richard G3CWI
