Multiband HF Projects - Vertical Antennas

Click to enlarge"Vipormutant" Antenna by ON6MU
Versatile Inexpensive PORtable MUlti-band Tunable ANTenna. Well yes, one must have a name HI...It is nothing more then a base coil loaded antenna, but with a selector direct on the base to tune the antenna.

5 Band 1/4 wave Telescopic Antenna by EA5AVL
The 5-band antenna is simple and cheap to make, and has a performance that matches commercial antennas but at cost considerably lower.

A $20 HF Mobile Antenna by KM4IE
A few hours of fun with PVC and wire and you’ve got yourself a respectable road radiator!

Click to enlargeA High Efficiency Extended Length Mobile Antenna by W5JGV
Much taller than the average Ham mobile antenna, this tree branch snapper tops out at 17 feet, 10 inches above the road. The antenna itself is 3.42 meters or 11 feet 2 inches long from the top of the mounting spring to the tip.

As a lot of you will appreciate, to work good DX requires a low angle of radiation from the antenna. It is possible to achieve this low angle with a horizontal antenna, but only if sufficient height above ground can be achieved.

For any ham who likes to travel, and who often travels by car, a mobile installation soon becomes a necessity. This is especially true when traveling on roads like the one depicted here!

click to enlargeBalcony Antenna by SMØVPO
Many amateurs are very restricted with the space they have available for HF antennas. I have documented a short antenna for the HF bands, but here is a simple method of mounting it, and a method of further reducing the length.

Click to enlargeBalcony Antenna Extension by SMØVPO
You may have already seen my HF Balcony Antenna which was designed solely for 14MHz, then a coil was added to cover all the lower HF bands (10, 7 and 3.5MHz).

Click to enlargeBuild the PAC-12 Antenna a multi-band portable vertical designed by KA5DVS
Here’s an award-winning, easy-to-homebrew, multi-band portable vertical antenna designed by long-time antenna aficionado James Bennett, KA5DVS. He’s documented the design and construction plans for a portable antenna...

Build This Novice Four-Band Vertical by WB1FSB
Putting your first amateur station together can be an expensive proposition. One way to cut costs is to keep the antenna simple. Here's how I shaved the price and provided four-band operation.

Click to enlargeIC706/FT817 portable "whip" antenna by PAØFBK
Another nice antenna is very suitable for owners of an IC706 or FT817, but of course it is also usable with other transceivers and receivers. With this antenna you can be QRV everywhere within a few minutes, ...

Click to enlargeMobile/Portable HF Whip by G3YCC
I thought it may be of interest to describe simple to make HF whip antennas I have experimented with and used for a while.

Click to enlargeMultiband H-Pole by HB9MTN
After several attempts to build a multiband C-Pole I finally ended up with the Multiband H-Pole. C-Poles for different frequencies on one pole must be fed with separate feedlines over separate current baluns.

Click to enlargeMultiband Vertical Antenna Project by KV5R
The purpose of this project is to design a simple multiband vertical dipole antenna for 20 meters and above, with a tuner, that will provide gain and a circular pattern on the higher bands.

Click to enlargeShort Antenna by SMØVPO
"QRP" operation often means operating in remote places where a decent full-sized antenna is not possible. I personally live in an appartment where I am unable to erect large antennas.

St. Louis Vertical by NFØR
The St. Louis Vertical (SLV) offers portable enthusiasts an easy-to-build, easy-to-use antenna which covers 10-40M via a balanced line tuner.

The Offset Multiband Trapless Antenna (OMTA) by AL7KK
Once in a while an idea turns out to be so good that it can’t stay a secret. The offset multiband trapless antenna (OMTA) is so simple to build, so easy to employ and works so well, it fits that category.

Ultimate Portable HF Vertical Antenna by AD5X
Due to the tremendous response to my portable vertical antenna (July 2002 QST), I’ve continued to evolve the design. Now, I’ve come up with a longer, lighter and more compact (when disassembled) antenna that is easier to build, and easier to find parts for.
