The K2MIJ 30 meter "Limbo Stick" antenna. Post #1038.

If you can't view this video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3coh5JXZOA. Here's a 30 meter vertical antenna that is only 9 inches/22.86 cm tall, including the "halo" which serves as a "top hat."  According "visualjuiceman", the antenna works quite well on the 30 meter Amateur Radio band and exhibits a low SWR (see photo of the MFJ HF/VHF SWR Analyzer, model MFJ-259B).  The coil consists of a 2 inch/5.08 cm PVC form using 26-24 AWG wire. The radiator is made from #10 AWG wire.  This antenna is very "stealthy" and could be used in deed-restricted properties. Why not make one of these super small antennas and have some fun?
