Thanks to Steve Palmer for this easily-made 40 meter antenna.  Most of the materials can be found locally at  moderate cost. Also, you can adapt this basic design for other Amateur Radio HF bands.  Don't forget to install a good ground radial or counterpoise system. Thanks for joining us today.

Portable 40 meter Vertical Antenna Build

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvOv5U7uUeg This is post 2379 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas. Thanks to Steve Palmer for this simple 40 meter vertical antenna project.  Although the antenna is designed for the 40 meter band, it can perform as well on the 15 meter band, using the third harmonic of the 40 meter band. This is an all-around basic antenna that will provide hours of fun and education on the ham bands.  Just take your time and be sure to install a ground radial system.   You can get multi-band performance by using 450 ohm ladder line and an antenna "tuner". ---- Thanks for joining us today.
