A roll-up counterpoise mat for vertical antennas.


Here's another antenna accessory worth considering--a "roll-up counterpoise mat for vertical antennas."

According to Australian radio amateur Peter Parker (VK3YE), this simple, easy-to-make counterpoise mat will improve the performance of your HF vertical antenna.

The mat does a good job of replacing the tedious process of laying out ground radials for your "field" operations.

Here are a few comments from Peter (VK3YE);

Is this your magic carpet for DX? Or were conditions just good? Either way it seems to be a handy accessory to have if you operate portable. Video includes construction details and an on-air test with contacts on 20, 30 & 40m.
