Frankentenna (or…my mongrel portable antenna)


A few people have asked about my somewhat scraggly looking antenna that appears in some videos.  This antenna started off as nice commercial end fed used at home, but ended up being used for portable work.  Over the years is has suffered as a result of being pull up into trees, getting tangled, being pulled down, thrown in the car etc, and some running repair have been necessary.  It looks very haggard, but it works a treat – even helping win a contest or two.  I made a video to help explain how it is held together and some of the things I have learnt and incorporated into it’s ‘design’.
