Are you tired of laying out radial systems for your portable ham radio operations?

If you are, please consider using aluminum window screens as a simple, inexpensive alternative.

In this video, Dave Casler (KE0OG) discusses the window screen counterpoise system, based on several videos produced by Michael Martens (KB9VBR).
