Backyard antennae

Here are a couple of my portable antenna systems.

In the back of the below pic is my awesome 21′ tripod mast from HRO. I’ve used it for my Hamstick dipoles, G5RV jr. and longwire antennas. The mast is non-conductive fiberglass. Works really well. I plan on taking it up with me when I next go mountain-topping.

In the foreground is my new Outbacker Outpost tripod, which has my Outbacker Perth Plus multi-band trap vertical on it.

Those long blades attached to the legs are for capacitive coupling to the ground. Because of this, no ground radials are required. It’s really a neat system.
