If you're tired of underperforming multiband HF antennas, why not try a full-sized Windom Antenna?  In this video, New Zealand ham Peter Echer and his 6-year old daughter  use a redesigned Windom Antenna to reach around the world--with his daughter even conversing in Russian!  Peter takes you through the step-by-step process of designing, building, installing, and using this "classic antenna" from ham radio's distant past.  An excellent, well-produced video.

Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Windom radio Ham antenna. Post #869.

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uf32ecwFjjQ. My series on Windom Antennas continues with a practical demonstration of this classic amateur radio antenna from the 1920s.  In this video from Peter Echer, we see a 160 meter Windom Antenna in action. Peter claims this large antenna and his 50 watt transmitter output often outperform small beams, dipoles, and verticals. Peter does a good job of showing how to build this off-center dipole.  If you lack the space Peter has, try a Windom Antenna designed for 40 through 10 meters.
