Putting up my HF Apartment Antenna (End-Fed Dual Band)

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNCMhD8cHl0 This is post 2597 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas. Here's another interesting idea for deploying a HF antenna for apartment dwellers. "Modern Ham" does a nice job of describing his dual band (20m/40m) antenna which uses a balcony and a nearby tree for support. Here are comments about the antenna: So I bought the antenna listed here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/HF-End-Fed-D... ​ I am in an upstairs apartment so it was a challenge coming up with a way to get an hf antenna up. The best conclusion I could come to was an end fed dual band antenna for 20-40 meters It's not the best job, but I've gotten a few contacts and it's a start. I do hope it doesn't cause any problems with the landlords. Make sure to check out my blog, and shop over at: https://themodernham.com ----- Thanks for joining us today. Aloha es
