How to become
a HCDX partner



In need of a stealth antenna? Then go for any metal you might find, antenna expert Skip Arey says.

Go for hidden antennas

No way of getting that great antenna of your dream?
Against neighborhood rules?
Well, put up a flagpole, suggested antenna guru Skip Arey at The Hidden Antenna meeting at the 2001 years' Kulpville DX meeting.
Then tell your complaining neighbors you're one of those Vietnam Vets, and simply needs that flag to feel proper.
Then use that pole in the most fantastic ways:
Vertical, vertical, vertical.
One good plain antenna.
And make sure your grounding is good. Because good ground gets more signal.
If none of these ideas go, look around. Once, twice and then again.
"You just have to use any existing metal you can find. It might turn into a fine antenna," Skip Arey said.
