HF Vertical


HF verticals are a popular antenna option when trees and towers aren’t available.  They are the antennas of choice on the low bands for working DX, as most hams can’t get horizontal antennas high enough to be as effective as a vertical on 80M.  They can be surprisingly effective with a good radial or ground system, and disappointing over poor ground.


Ground Systems for Verticals

Rudy Severns N6LF has written a series of articles in QEX on measurements he has done on ground systems for vertical antennas.  You can download the articles from his blog, Antennas By N6LF
