John Robertson: Thanks for your comments and for following along with my videos. You may try a vendor in the UK that sells MFJ products. MFJ makes a model very similar to the Hamstick. In fact, several of the antennas in the video are MFJ units. Hope this helps.
aeron Williams: Great stuff , looks very interesting . Not sure if the hamsticks are available here in the uk .
Roger7351IT: Good Idea!!

Max0168Games: great idea
John Robertson: Dennis,
Tnx for watching and for your comments. I've had mixed success trying to get an ideal lenght for the hamstick counterpoise. One day it works fine the other, not so much. I've decided the best length is to use 1/8 wavelength counterpoise. I can't tell much difference in the number as long as I have at least one counterpoise. Actually, I've lately had *much* better luck with hamstick dipoles
redman840: Tnx,John for doing yet another great video and sharing it with us.A lot of these projects are simple yet made simpler yet by watching your videos,so let me give you some credit for your presentation.I was wondering with the elevated counterpoise(s) if you are cutting them about a foot over resonant length and trimming them to resonance and if using two laid out 180 degs.apart would ease the tuning process?..Keep up the good work and keep these videos coming!..73...Dennis W7KB.
John Robertson: Dale,
Thanks for the comments and for following along. You are correct, those Hamsticks can be tricky. I have found that as little as a 1/4 inch movement in or out of the 'stinger' can make a big difference. Also, you may try a counterpoise and may see some SWR improvement. Hope this helps.
kaiforice: John nice job on the video's i have been watching them and find them very helpful made the clamp for the 20 meter ham stick but i'm having trouble getting the SWR down low enough for my auto tuner to tune it.

2E1FUE: Very nice John yet another great video :) will you do a video on a antenna switch 3 way :) please please just like your other one the 2 way :) realy good stuff john :)
Wiltshire Man: Neat idea John.
Something for me to consider for my next camping trip!
Anthony Modrow: great video john! that looks reasonably cheap for a starter ham :)
James Kelly: Fantastic idea!
I'm really enjoying your videos, lots of interesting projects.
