Portable Field Antenna Project. Post #1138.

If you can't view this video, please insert this title URL into your browser searchbox: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXo0XucRpt0. Here's another intriguing portable antenna idea from NG9D.  In this video, we learn how to design, build, and use a 3-band HF "Lambda" antenna, so named because it resembles the Greek letter "Lambda." Basically, the antenna approximates a 1/4 wavelength 40 meter vertical with a single 1/4 wavelength elevated radial wire or counterpoise.  This antenna requires an antenna "tuner" for multiband HF use.  The video covers construction tips, "no solder" assembly, and how to make a homebrewed feed line.
