Ground Plane Four Radials..No Loading Coil

Ground Plane Four Radials Slightly Above Ground: 14 MHz Operation

This antenna is commonly used in portable operation. In this case there are no loading coils and only four radials are used. The gain is low but the antenna is easy to assemble and mount.   Dimensions are given in the 4nec2 file. Gain @ 30 degree take off angle = -2.1 dBi
