Coming up, build a 20 meter for pennies.

Well, almost pennies. During February’s meeting we will describe a rather 20 meter antenna design that anyone can build. It consists of a simple wood base plate, some screws, some 14 gauge household wiring, and an SO235 connector. Oh, and a nearby tree would be nice.

The completed antenna is so stealthy we had to resort to some special imagery just so you can see it. Here is the prototype side view animation. You may want to paint yours green to make it even more stealthy.

Below is the base plate, also animated.
