Inverted V HF DX Antenna from a backyard.


If you live on a small urban lot, antenna placement can be a difficult problem to solve.

According to Peter Waters (G3OJV), a simple solution to the backyard antenna issue is the use of an inverted V dipole antenna.

The inverted V is inexpensive, easy-to-make, and takes up less space than a conventional horizontal dipole antenna.

Here are some comments from Peter (G3OJV):

The Inverted V Antenna has a few advantages when it comes to erection and support. But even at low heights it can still perform as a DX antenna.
