NVIS Antenna setup | K7SW Ham Radio


If you need reliable local or regional coverage beyond ground wave range, please try this NVIS (near vertical incidence skywave) antenna tested by Kevin (K7SW) and Eric (KI7WJP).

NVIS antennas can provide reliable communications up to 300 miles (486 kilometers).  This antenna is perfect for emergency or portable operations.

Kevin and Eric show how to build, test, and use a simple NVIS antenna for 80 and 40 meters.

Here are a few comments from Kevin and Eric:

Collaborating with Eric (KI7WJP) conducting an NVIS antenna test. We are using low power and NVIS antennas at sunset for a chance to see how good or bad we can communicate using 80 and 40 meters locally. We are demonstrating a setup for a close range when ground-wave is not possible for us. Being 25 miles apart for this test and using battery power will test our ability. See how you can setup in a short period of time to make an emergency contact in case you need to receive or send information using HF Radio.
