80m Pedestrian Mobile Antenna experiment. Post #1455.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdGvjRyo0LM. If you want to try some fascinating antenna experiments, consider operating pedestrian mobile on 80 meters.  With a little ingenuity, a coil loaded wire on fiberglass rod, and a trailing radial wire, you could have some real fun.  Martin (VA3PCJ), Mark (VA3UPM), Ante (VA2BBW, Patrick (VA3CMD, and Jose (VA3PCJ), modified a few designs from Peter Parker (VK3YE) and came up with this person-portable ham radio station.  Interesting idea.  Be sure your back gets some support.
