The vertical format of this portable makes operating easy for hand held walking. The two videos show the simple idea. Two black zip-ties hold an extended lightweight collapsible black fishing rod to radio, bits of black plastic tape hold the 8' loose black wire. Crocodile clip will fit onto the tip of the built in antenna even when the built in stainless rod is fully collapsed.

At 7:36 of second video Australia coming in clear on twenty meters with radio and antenna laying flat on the English beach sand.

I just happened to buy this radio yesterday direct from County Comm by registering on their website, putting in their online cart in the morning, and by evening they had emailed me a $5 off any order coupon. Shipping was free.
