I wanted an aerial for portable use, so I thought I’d try a kit from Sotabeams, called a Linked Dipole Kit.

It contains all of the pieces to allow you to make up a multi-band dipole, using crocodile clips to connect together the sections of the elements, tuning for different bands.

I made mine for 17m, 20m and 40m.  Putting it on the air, with a lightweight fishing pole as a mast, it worked pretty well.

The kit can be bought from here
