Cheap, Quick, Easy to Build, Works Great QRP Portable Antenna. Post #1506,

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyZbQEUtyE4. Here's a simple, easy to make HF antenna suitable for home station, portable, or emergency use.  According to Tinker John (W5CYF), all you need are some old headphone cases, a few lengths of wire, and a few pieces of equipment from your shack to build this inexpensive HF antenna.  Although this project was designed for the 20 meter Amateur Radio band (cut for 14.200 MHz), you could scale a similar antenna for any band between 160 and 10 meters.  This antenna should be part of your emergency "go-kit" when disaster strikes.

Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Cheap, Quick, Easy to Build, Works Great QRP Portable Antenna!

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your blog search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyZbQEUtyE4. This is post #840 in a continuing series on Amateur Radio Antennas. Another great and easily- followed antenna tutorial from "Tinker John" (W5CYF).  This simple portable antenna is perfect for backpacking or portable operations from a public park, beach, or even your backyard. John uses a few Dollar Tree earphone cases, some surplus wire, and a few inexpensive items from his ham shack to build a very effective portable QRP antenna.  The cost of wire has increased significantly over the past few years, so you may have to visit a few "garage sales" to get the wire you need.  You can use a telescoping, fiberglass mast to support the antenna in a horizontal, sloper, or inverted vee configuration.  A great antenna idea.
