Antenna secrets & experiments

1. Find a garage sale where there's a $5,000 military crank-up mast and 40-foot push-up fiberglass mast and pay $150 for both.

2. Take a 4' X 50' roll of chicken wire and use it as a counterpoise. Voila, the vertical and inverted L antennas work like magic. Next time will use two rolls in a cross configuration.

  1. Love the chicken wire solution... so simple and yet so effective. I can think or at least two trips might have been useful to keep the animals OUT of the camp site too :-)
