Milspec Antenna in the Field with a FT-817

Finally got my Proof of Concept completed to actual build for a wideband HF portable antenna

I used a broadband un-un for wideband impedance matching – still needs a tuner, a 12 foot AT-271, 25 feet of counterpoise and coax.

I tried it across several bands with out a tuner (FT-817 didnt balk so assume the swr was not 5 to 1) and very happy with the performance and can pack up nicely into a 20 inch bag. The swr was many bars on the display.

I will showcase it at the next Toronto QRP Society meeting
