Using a 1/4 wave wire vertical(TRIPOLE)

The elevated wire vertical antenna for ten meters is simple and effective. Named it a "tripole" just for fun.

The antenna itself is simple. A piece of RG-58 cable runs to the feed point of the antenna, and is attached to an insulator. Two radial wires are soldered to the coax-line braid at this point. Another piece of wire forms the radiator. The top of the radiator section is suspended from a tree limb or other convenient support, and in turn supports the rest of the antenna. The dimensions for the antenna are 234/f. All three wires of the antenna are wavelength long. The tree-mounted vertical idea can also be used for fixed station installations to make an invisible antenna.

Shallow trenches can be slit for burying the coax feeder

and the radial wires. The radiator itself is difficult to see

unless you are standing right next to the tree.
