2014 Field Day - Free Standing Painter Pole Fan Dipole with W4EDF. Post 1768.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: It's not too early to think about your ARRL Field Day antenna.  A little planning now could result in better scores and more fun when the third weekend in June rolls around. Field Day Antennas should be simple, easily erected, and entirely portable. In this 2014 video from the Strasbourg, Virginia Field Day event, W4EDF demonstrates how to assemble and deploy a free standing painter pole with only one person doing the work.  W4EDF covers materials, wire, knots, poles. and guying techniques for windy conditions.  This video should give you some excellent ideas for your next Field Day antenna.
