Small, cheap, efficient vertical antenna for 40m.


 

Here's another fascinating antenna idea from Colin (MM0OPX).

In this video, Colin shows how linear loading can reduce the size of 40 meter vertical antenna without compromising performance.

This modification should appeal to radio amateurs who live on small urban lots or other land-restricted properties.

Here are some comments from Colin (MM0OPX):

Demonstration of a linear loaded 1/4 wave vertical amtenna that shows (at least) in modeling that it is as efficient as a full size 1/4 wave. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
