Installing a new Vertical Ham Radio Antenna

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrWLqixFFuc This is post 2584 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas. If you're looking for a commercially-made HF antenna, then this tutorial from "learningbyelectronics" may be what you need. The antenna featured in this program is the popular Hustler 4-BTV from DX Engineering. The video takes us from unpacking the antenna through its assembly and testing. If you decide to make your own ground radial plate, you can use a large aluminum pizza pan available at Walmart.  Good luck on your new antenna! ----- Thanks for joining us today.

Installing a new vertical ham radio antenna

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrWLqixFFuc This is post 2457 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas. Although I build most of the antennas at my home, there are a few commercial antennas worth your time and effort. Among them is the Hustler 4-BTV from DX Engineering. In this video from "learnelectronics", we get an excellent step-by-step assembly procedure for this HF vertical antenna.     This antenna has gained several outstanding reviews from fellow radio amateurs.  If you can't build your own antenna, then try the  4-BTV.  Just take your time and make all adjustments carefully. ----- Thanks for joining us today.
