The simple coax cable emergency field antenna

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser searchbox: This is post 2513 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas. Every radio amateur should have emergency antennas for the HF, VHF, and UHF bands. As Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) points out, this antenna is probably "hidden" in your "junk box", just waiting to be assembled. Here are some comments and suggestions from Kevin: An old design that many new hams may not be familiar with. Easy to build with minimal tools, great emergency throw-it-together antenna.
