Potential idea for a reconfigurable, portable, HF antenna ?

So I just had an idea, see this:

Portable HF Antenna Idea

Maybe, just maybe, this would work.

you’ll need an antenna tuner because reasons, and probably extra strain relief, but think about it.

need a 10/20/40m antenna?
hook up two 10m cat5 lengths!

you could keep it in a bag, and go off camping or to a field day, forgot your cables?
no prob! head to a nearby electronics store and grab some ethernet of the length you need!

where the cat5 jacks connect to the pl-259, all wires are used in the cat5.

 

JUST DONT GO PLUGGING THE OTHER END INTO ANYTHING HAHAA

  1. nice man!
    I feel like some tech talk is way out of my league but still, cool! For some of your next posts maybe you could display your awesome wacky inventions/ tell people what you’ve gotten up to. Like the implants, electronic doors etc etc.
