Making Ham Radio Antennas out of things that aren't antennas.

Here's one of the most fun and enjoyable antenna tutorials on the internet.  Thanks to Mike (K8MRD) and his friends, we find that almost anything metal can be used as a ham radio antenna...even a pair of crutches and an empty liquor bottle.

If you like to experiment with unusual, "offbeat" antenna ideas, then this video is for you.

Most of these antennas actually work.  So the next time you need an antenna for some emergency or field operation, just let your imagination run wild.  An excellent presentation.
