20 Meter Homebrew Portable Ground Plane Antenna

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVC4lsgNwSw This is post 2624 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas. If you need a portable 20 meter antenna for the upcoming ARRL Field Day or for your home station use, then this project from K1GMM is worth considering. The antenna is simple and ideally configured for emergency or portable use. Here are some comments from K1GMM: Dx'ing using a homebrew 20 mtr gp antenna with a FT857D running between 60-75 watts. This thing works great! UPDATE: The mount has been changed to a 1" pvc tube u-bolted to the stand. Assemble the 102" whip and the 3/4" copper tube and drop it into the tube. Super stable and much stronger. Music by K1GMM ----- Thanks for joining us today. Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
