  • Loop antennas - Full-wave loops are very popular antennas. They are especially useful on 80 and 40 meters where they perform well at modest heights.
  • Short antennas - Shortened Antennas for Portables.
  • The double bazooka - Notes on Assembly of the Double Bazooka.
  • The Hentenna - The Hentenna was developed by Japanese 6 Meter Hams, JE1DEU / JH1FCZ/ JH1YST in the 1970's and can be designed and built for hf thru uhf and possibly beyond!
