Living out in the badlands of New Mexico, sometimes trees are in short supply. With the inverted Vee antenna, all I need is one tree and I am set to go. I use a 20 meter wire inverted vee antenna. Just tie a cord onto a rock and throw the rock into a tree across a main branch. Then hoist the antenna up and tie off the legs of the antenna. Bingo, I am ready to operate. My ICOM 703, log, antenna and coax fit in a backpack and I carry the gelcell batteries in a lunchbox.


I can only agree! After the EFHW the inverted V is my favorite, especially for 40m NVIS.
