It's amazing what you can make with just a few feet of wire, a few connectors, ceiling hooks, tape, and some creativity. In this video, we see a few examples of HF wire antennas which can be made from locally available materials.  This video does a good job of showing the construction details of an inverted Vee "Slinky" antenna, a modified half square antenna for 20 meters, and an indoor two-turn HF loop. Getting on the air may be as close as your garage, storage room, and the proverbial "junk box" kept by most radio amateurs.  Don't be afraid to experiment with homebrew antenna designs.  That's part of the fund of being a ham radio operator.

Antenna experiments are fun, educational, sometimes surprising, and at times frustrating.  In this video from "umajunkcollector:, we see a variety of curious and fascinating homemade HF antennas that work very well for the bands they cover.  Particularly interesting are the inverted U antenna, an inverted V slinky dipole antenna, and an unconventional 20 meter antenna.  Try some of these antennas and see how well they perform.  Most of the antenna materials can be found in your junk box or from the nearest building supply outlet.  Building antennas is a great way to spend a creative afternoon.
