Ham Radio Antennas

VE3YT and KE7X are amazed at the amount of money many newly minted hams are willing to spend on bits of wire that can be purchased at their local building supply store and some fittings available from ham radio supply stores.  Even though the radios we buy (other than kits) are getting far more complex than most of us can troubleshoot when something goes wrong, designing, building and testing antennas is a very satisfying activity to test our creative juices.  Chapter 8.  Some Practical Antennas shows many wire antennas that you can try.
