Vertical Antenna Step-By-Step.
Here's one of the easiest to understand Vertical Antenna tutorials online. Michael Martens (KB9VBR) does an excellent job from design to final product in the well-paced video program.
As an added bonus, Michael shows us how to incorporate the highly-rated "Wolf River Coil" into the overall design of this antenna.

Here are some comments and suggestions from Michael (KB9VBR):
We go 'Back to Basics' with the vertical antenna. I take you through the parts and setup of the Wolf River Coil Vertical Antenna System and show it in use at Cross Plains State Park, WI (POTA K-1448). As a bonus, patrons can view the full, unedited video of my Parks on the Air activations. Visit my page on Patreon for details: I do return QSL, if you made a contact with me and would like a QSL, please send me one. Return postage not necessary, but always appreciated. As they say, KB9VBR is 'good in the book.'
