A simple vertical antenna can be an amazingly effective way to launch your signals, especially if you lack the space to erect a dipole, inverted vee, or even a small yagi-uda beam.  In this video. Ric (K8YIO) show us his simple vertical antenna and ground radial system. Most of the materials can be found at the nearest hardware or building supply outlet.  This simple antenna has given Ric plenty of DX.  The video is loaded with lots of suggestions that will help you design, build, and use this antenna at your home station.
