How to Camouflage a Vertical Antenna

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXyA03YtKqQ This post 2512 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas. Building, erecting, and using a vertical antenna is becoming more challenging, thanks to deed restrictions and smaller home properties. In this video from "Outdoors On The Air", we see how a few PVC pipes, paint, and placement can reduce the visual footprint of your next antenna. If you follow the suggestions in this video, you'll soon have an antenna that is "out of sight and out of mind." Thanks for joining us today. Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).

If you ever wanted to conceal your ham radio antenna from nosey neighbors or the local HOA/CC&R group, then this camouflage idea from "Outdoors On The Air" could be of interest. Thanks to some paint and a number of trees, this vertical antenna is well hidden from peering eyes. Be sure the paint you select doesn't contain metal particles--they may hamper antenna performance. ----- Thanks for joining us today. Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
