I need to take a wire antenna with me to operate Field Day. What would be the best to pack in a suitcase ?

Hay Bob.Name here is Jim and I live in Belgium..
Not much positive reactions to Your Query I see.
Just came back from TK Trip (Corsica Island) where I was for my job (Team building and Adv. training in the mountains).
In my spare time I was qrv with the following.
TS130S with a switching MFJ PSU.
My only antenna was a fiberglass fishing rod 10 m long with a 1/4 wave 40 m vertical taped on it. My mast was a little short so I helicalled the wire till it fitted . Wire is 10.3m long (some 33.8ft) and with 4 equally long radials laid on the ground.
At the antenna feedpoint (base of vertical wire) I have put a C-L-C network all variable . This lets me tune the antenna on all bands from 160->10m.
Works very well and is simple to build and small to transport.(Tpt bag is 4 feet long)

You know a dipole is a one band solution.....

Enjoy Your FD dear friend Bob and look for me during IARU contest .

Well - yes. But.......

They are simple.
They are small and light - take several or make a multi-wire mult-band dipole.
They are very good antennas.
You can throw some nylon cord over a tree branch and host the dipole up - you can
even use it as a vertical if you dont have the room to string it out --- etc.

How can you go wrong?

it depends on what you want to work. Good is an multiband vertical like HF9V from Butternut. Small package and fits 80-10m. If you focus more on the higher bands try a Hexbeam. Great performance for that small size and wheight.
If you look more for local QSO's a dipole is the right way.

Please note, you can if you wish send you're own countries currency / $ etc, but if possible you should try and send the currency for the country of the address E.G. UK - USA - $ In the few countries where it is illegal to send currency out of the country you can obtain a license from the postoffice. You may also wish to declare you're extra earnings.

I found this exact message on a bulletin board just as you have found it
Like you I thought, this cannot be possible but 'let's give it a go'.
Thankfully I 'gave it a go', risked a whole 6.00,
it is as you read working for me and returning me 6,000.00 within weeks.
Try harder than me and it could return you 60,000 within weeks.

6.00 to 6,000 or even 60,000. "Yeah right, this must be a scam"
My thoughts as well.
But like most of us, I was curious, so I kept reading.

Anyway, the message said the following:
1> > >Send just 1.00 to each of the 6 names and address stated below.
2 > > >You then place your own name and address in the bottom of this
below at #6.
3 > > > You post the article in at least 200 newsgroups
(I know of 40,000 and said only about 200)
4> > > Wait for your mail and watch your 6.00 to turn into 60,000
No catch or scam there, that was it.

what have I got to lose except 6 stamps and 6.00 ?????

Then I invested the measly 6.00.
Followed the instructions and GUESS WHAT!?...
within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail! I was shocked!
I figured it would end soon, but the money just kept coming in. In my
first week, I made about 25.00.
By the end of the second week I had made a total of over 1,000.00!
In the third week I had over 10,000.00 and it`s still growing.
This is now my fourth week and I have made a total of just over
still it flows in.
Not bad for a 6.00 risk and 6 stamps, I have spent more than that on the
lottery (and never won !!)

So HOW & more importantly WHY does this work?
I promise you that if you follow the directions exactly, that you
will start making more money than you thought possible by doing
something so easy!

Suggestion: Read the entire message carefully! (print it out or
download it.) Follow the simple directions and watch the money come in!

It`s easy. It`s legal. And, your investment is only 6.00 (Plus postage)

IMPORTANT: This is not a rip-off; it is not indecent; it is not
illegal; and it is 99% no risk - it really works!
If all of the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive
extraordinary dividends.

Please follow these directions EXACTLY, and 50,000 or more can be
yours in 20 to 60 days.
This program remains successful because of the honesty and integrity of

Please continue its success by carefully adhering to the instructions.

You will now become part of the Mail Order business.
In this business your product is not solid and tangible, it`s a service.
You are in the business of developing Mailing Lists.
Many large corporations are happy to pay big bucks for quality lists.
However, the money made from the mailing lists is secondary
When compared to the income which is made from people like
you and me asking to be included in that list.

Here are the 4 easy steps to success:
STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on
> > > each piece of paper
> > > My name is ...... My address is .....
Once added to the list, each person will send you a new component and/or
money making advice to help you along the way.
This advice has been passed down person to person and is very helpful

Now get 6 UK 1.00 coins and place ONE in-between two pieces of card
The size of your envelope, with EACH of the 6 pieces of paper so the coin
will not be seen or felt through the envelope (to prevent thievery).

Next, place one paper in each of the 6 envelopes and seal them.
You should now have 6 sealed envelopes

Each containing a piece of paper stating the above phrase, your name and
address, and a 1.00 coin.
What you are doing is creating a service. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY LEGAL!
You are requesting a legitimate service and you are paying for it!
Like most of us I was a little skeptical and a little worried
about the legal aspects of it all.
So I checked it out with the U.K. Post Office and they confirmed that it
indeed legal.

Mail the 6 envelopes to the following addresses:

13 Collywell Bay Road
Seaton Sluice
Tyne & Wear

#2) C D John
24 Hampton Court Crescent,
East Molesey,
Surrey, KT8 9BA, UK

24 Grafton Road
Whitley Bay
Tyne & Wear
NE26 2NR

#4) D Mackinnon JNR
8 Munro Place
KA21 6LG

#5) I Carroll
30 Richmond Crescent

#6) D Ford
15 Boardman Fold RD
M24 1QD

If Sending out of your Country Remember to use $1.00 Bills (which are
Easier to send anyway), and International post addresses.

STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move
the other names up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc...) and add YOUR
Name as number 6 on the list.

STEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as
close to original as possible. Now, post your amended article to at
least 200 newsgroups. (Remember there are close to 40,000 groups) All
you need is 200, but remember, the more you post, the more money you
make! You won`t get very much unless you post like crazy. :)

* This is perfectly legal! If you have any doubts, refer to Title 18
Sec. 1302 & 1341 of the Postal lottery laws. *

Keep a copy of these steps for yourself and, whenever you need money,
you can use it again, and again.

PLEASE REMEMBER that this program remains successful because of the
honesty and integrity of the participants and by their carefully
adhering to the directions. Look at it this way. If you are of
integrity, the program will continue and the money that so many
others have received will come your way.

NOTE: You should keep every name and address sent to you,
either on a computer or hard copy and keep the notes people send you.
This VERIFIES that you are truly providing a service. (Also, it might
be a good idea to wrap the 1 coin / $1.00 bill in paper to reduce the
of mail theft.)

So, as each post is downloaded and the directions carefully followed,
six members will be reimbursed for their participation as a List
Developer with one dollar each. Your name will move up the list
geometrically so that when your name reaches the #1 position you will
be receiving thousands of dollars in CASH!!! What an opportunity for
only 6.00 (1.00 for each of the first six people listed above) Send
it now, add your own name to the list and you`re in business!

Step 1) You do not need to re-type this entire letter to do your own
posting. Simply put your cursor at the beginning of this letter and
drag your cursor to the bottom of this document, and select `copy`
from the edit menu. This will copy the entire letter into the
computer`s memory.

Step 2) Open a blank `notepad` file and place your cursor at the top
of the blank page. From the `edit` menu select `paste`. This will
paste a copy of the letter into notepad so that you can add your name
to the list. Step 3) Save your new notepad file as a .txt file. If
you want to do your postings in different settings, you`ll always
have this file to go back to.

Step 4) Use Netscape or Internet explorer and try searching for
various newsgroups (on-line forums, message boards, chat sites,

Step 5) Visit these message boards and post this article as a new
message by highlighting the text of this letter and selecting paste
from the edit menu. Fill in the Subject, this will be the header that
everyone sees as they scroll through the list of postings in a
particular group, click the post message button. You`re done with
your first one! Congratulations...THAT`S IT! All you have to do is
jump to different newsgroups and post away, after you get the hang of
it, it will take about 30 seconds for each newsgroup! **REMEMBER, THE
YOU HAVE TO POST A MINIMUM OF 200** (easy when there are over 40,000)
That`s it! You will begin receiving
money from around the world within days! You may eventually want to
rent a P.O.Box due to the large amount of mail you will receive. If
you wish to stay anonymous, you can invent a name to use, as long as
the postman will deliver it. **JUST MAKE SURE ALL THE ADDRESSES ARE

Now the WHY part:
Out of 200 postings, say I receive only 5 replies (a very low
example). So then I made 5.00 with my name at #6 on the letter. Now,
each of the 5 persons who just sent me 1.00 make the MINIMUM 200
postings, each with my name at #5 and only 5 persons respond to each
of the original 5, that is another 25.00 for me, now those 25 each
make 200 MINIMUM posts with my name at #4 and only 5 replies each, I
will bring in an additional 125.00! Now, those 125 persons turn
around and post the MINIMUM 200 with my name at #3 and only receive 5
replies each, I will make an additional 626.00! OK, now here is the
fun part, each of those 625 persons post a MINIMUM 200 letters with
my name at #2 and they each only receive 5 replies, that just made me
3,125.00!!! Those 3,125 persons will all deliver this message to 200
newsgroups with my name at #1 and if still 5 persons per 200
newsgroups react I will receive 15,625,00! With an original
investment of only 6.00! AMAZING! When your name is no longer on the
list, you just take the latest posting in the newsgroups, and send
out another 6.00 to names on the list, putting your name at number 6
again. And start posting again. The thing to remember is: do you
realize that thousands of people all over the world are joining the
internet and reading these articles everyday?, JUST LIKE YOU are
now!! So, can you afford 6.00 and see if it really works?? I think
so... People have said, "what if the plan is played out and no
one sends you the money? So what! What are the chances of that
happening when there are tons of new honest users and new honest
people who are joining the internet and newsgroups everyday and are
willing to give it a try? Estimates are at 20,000 to 50,000 new
users, every day, with thousands of those joining the actual

Why not post more than 200
If you get 15 responses, look at the math
Here is what you will make:
at #6 15.00
at #5 225.00
at #4 3,375.00
at #3 50,625.00
at #2 759,375.00
at #1 11,390,625.00

Remember, play FAIRLY and HONESTLY and this will really
work Send it to friends by email and snail mail also

Post it to 1,000's of news groups & bulletin boards, enjoy the results &
