Survey of less-expensive multiband HF Vertical Antennas

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGLcd9aR4S4 This is post 2501 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas. There are many ways to acquire a multiband HF vertical antenna.  Many radio amateurs (myself included) choose to learn from our mistakes by building our own vertical antennas. If you can't create your own HF vertical antenna, there are many commercial models available from cheap to expensive. In this video, David Casler (KE0OG) shows us some of the less-expensive commercial antennas that can produce excellent results at a modest cost. Perhaps some of these antennas will fit your station requirements. Here are some general comments from David: Oggie Mike, KB7HFS, asks for a recommendation for a new vertical antenna. He already has a radial field and a mount; his prior antenna was destroyed in a windstorm. He considers the Butternut HF-9V too expensive. We look on DXEngineering.com
