In this hobby there aren’t very many better feelings than working DX with an antenna you have built from scratch. I enjoyed my time using these antennas during this video!
Even better news is that the antennas I use in this video are so simple to make. One is for 10m and the other 15m and both are halfwave verticals, requiring no radials and easy to carry with you portable or install at home.
How to make the 10m version is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChAo3VObvC8
