During an emergency, one of the only dependable means of communication and sharing news is the shortwave radio. This method is dependable provided you have a portable wire antenna to receive a strong signal.
This informative article details several different methods for constructing a solid portable antenna, including:
- How to setup an antenna properly.
- Determine if the unit has an external antenna input or a telescopic antenna.
- Considering portable construction. Does the portable antenna fit easily into a backpack? Can it be setup within a few minutes?
- Carry appropriate supplies. Perhaps affix these supplies to your shortwave radio in case of an emergency.
- Insulated wire is a good means of conduit, and a creative way to expand your range is by hanging wire from a monofilament fishing line.
- Terrain can be a hindrance or blessing. If you are in the wilderness in a gully, it may be difficult to get a solid strong signal. However, if you are near a ridge, you may have a better signal range.
- Learn how to improve your current radio signal by using a clip, attaching it to the portable wire antenna and affixing it to your device’s built-in antenna.
Understanding the basics of building a portable wire antenna can afford valuable news and communication during times of hardship or peril.
