Simple Ham Radio Antennas--ZS6BKW Installation. Post #710.

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/rTMMG0AeKMg.  Here's another multiband HF antenna that traces its ancestry to the G5RV designed by Louis Varney (G5RV).  The ZS6BKW is an optimized variant of Varney's original 20 meter antenna design. You can either make one yourself or order one from an amateur radio supply outlet.  What's interesting about Alex's (PA1FOX) installation is the care he takes when he rigs the antenna from the steep roof of his house.  If you choose to have your home support one leg of this antenna, be sure to have a partner help you.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/rTMMG0AeKMg.  Great video from Alex (PA1FOX) on how to install the popular ZS6BKW antenna on an ordinary city lot. This antenna is an improved and more efficient variant of the G5RV HF antenna.  Alex's instructions are simple, direct, and nearly fool-proof.  Just be careful if your antenna installation will be attached to a steep-sloping roof such as Alex's.
