We go ‘Back to Basics’ with the vertical antenna. I take you through the parts and setup of the Wolf River Coil Vertical Antenna System and show it in use at Cross Plains State Park, WI (POTA K-1448).

As a bonus, patrons can view the full, unedited video of my Parks on the Air activations. Visit my page on Patreon for details: https://www.patreon.com/posts/pota-unedited-k-82810415

I do return QSL, if you made a contact with me and would like a QSL, please send me one. Return postage not necessary, but always appreciated. As they say, KB9VBR is ‘good in the book.’
