This video shows how easy is is to set up an end-fed HF antenna and a fiberglass pole, even in non-ideal weather. Sorry for the water on the lens; there was a lot of wet snow coming down on this day. Note: I put the fed end of the antenna up high on the pole due to past success in that configuration. Other operators prefer having the fed end at ground level. Please feel free to leave a comment telling other viewers (and me) about your experiences.
