The Alpha Multiband Antenna At Field Day 2016 Winter Springs Florida 6-2...

If you can't view this video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: This is post #1081 in a continuing series on "Simple Ham Radio Antennas." The ARRL Field Day is coming, with the event set for Saturday and Sunday, 24-25 June 2017.  Over the next few weeks, I'll be showing some videos from the 2016 Field Day contest, with the emphasis placed on new or interesting antennas used in this emergency communications event. In this video from "videosbymike", we see the popular Alpha Multiband Antenna used with its heavy duty tripod base.  Although propagation wasn't favorable last year, some interesting contacts were made.  Hopefully this video and the ones to follow in the coming weeks will inspire you to create a Field Day antenna that will perform well for your portable operation .
