80 Meter NVIS Antenna

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: If you enjoy informal QSOs on the 80 Meter Amateur Radio Band, then you need a simple, inexpensive NVIS antenna to bring daytime contacts alive. Thanks to Tim Carter (W3ATB), we see just how easy it is to talk with your fellow hams using this ultra-simple antenna. This NVIS (near vertical incidence skyway) antenna is also a good HF emergency antenna, providing usable communications out to approximately 300 miles/486 kilometers.   Don't expect long-range DX contacts with a NVIS antenna.  But, for local, state, and regional HF communications, you can't beat this classic antenna design. ----- Thanks for joining us today.
