Did this video help you?

Abraham Torres: BUT is it grounded?

Steve Weiss: Guess I am going to the hardware store tonight! Substitute a wing nut for that top nut so you can get the counterpoise wire tight without tools.

nr3rful: Good idea. I must wonder why two people dont seem to like this. What the heck is there not to like. Fess up guys. Explain yourself dont just vote negative

Rick Munday: Vanity call for Cover Your Fanny? :)

Dave Bear: Thanks, great idea. Where in MS was this taken?

Vasile Pop: Congratulations! Wonderful video. 73 de VA6POP 

W5CYF / TinkerJohn: @kaiforice 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. 73 John/W5CYF

Wiltshire Man: Neat idea John. Something for me to consider for my next camping trip! 73 Sandy

W5CYF / TinkerJohn: @2E1FUE --- Thanks for watching my videos. I'll add your suggestion to my list of projects. Take care ---73--- John

Костя Молчанов: Well figured out all clear what you have there is good weather, the sound of crickets, a beautiful mentions. E7BBM 73!

Oldport1813: Wow thanks for sharing. Cool set up.

Oldport1813: Wow, great idea. Thanks for sharing!

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.

pwllgwyngyll: Great idea John, 73, de Dave 2W0DAA

W5CYF / TinkerJohn: @redman840 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 73 John/W5CYF

W5CYF / TinkerJohn: @AI4QT -- We actually caught a weekend that was 'somewhat' nice. Anyway made some good QRP contacts over the weekend.

W5CYF / TinkerJohn: 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. 73 John

James Kelly: Fantastic idea! I'm really enjoying your videos, lots of interesting projects. Keep it up. 73's de 2M0JAS - James

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. 73 Dale kC7VGT
