Modificated RANDOM WIRE ANTENNA with 9:1 UnUn (part 2). Post 1765.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wgdhi__MlU. This part 2 of Paul's (OM0ET) Random Wire Antenna using a homemade 9:1 UnUn.  In part 1, Paul reviewed the general theory and construction steps needed to make this valuable accessory for random length wire antennas.  In part 2, Paul makes a few minor adjustments based on a few tests conducted at his shack.  The result is an attractive, functional, and portable UnUn suitable for home, portable, or emergency use.  As with most random long wire antennas, be sure to use a good ground radial or counterpoise system along with an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner").
