Sea Water Antenna

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tIZUhu21sQ This is post 2207 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas. For those radio amateurs experimenting with antennas and feed lines, you may want to make a "Sea Water Antenna" similar to the one published by "SPAWAR Systems Center Pacific." The antenna is interesting if it works as presented.  Here's some more information from the company: "SPAWAR Systems Center Pacific has developed a technology that uses the magnetic induction properties of sodium chloride (salt) in sea water to create UHF/VHF/HF antenna." Even if the antenna doesn't work, you may have fun designing one and testing it out at the nearest lake or ocean beach. ----- Thanks for joining us today. Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
