If you can't view the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0hCtmbD5as In this short video, Brett from "Survival Comms" shows us how to design, build, and use a simple multiband HF random length wire antenna with readily available materials.  The key to the antenna's success is a 9:1 UNUN, an antenna "tuner", and a good ground or counterpoise system.  Make one of these antennas for your emergency "go-kit."  A properly designed random length wire antenna can be used for portable or home operations.
