QRP RADIO: SPEAKER WIRE ANTENNA! Post #1154.

If you can't view this video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Gyfb7fivuA. Here's nice, simple antenna made from common audio speaker wire. In this video from K9ARV, we see a simple arrangement that allows for multiband HF operation with a small QRP HF transceiver.  The match box was made by Nelson antenna and is sold on e-Bay.  Note how K9ARV uses available trees to disguise the antenna.  An antenna "tuner" and a suitable ground radial/counterpoise system will enable you to get maximum performance from this basic wire antenna.
