Quick Tips #1 – The Goat Wind (“Goʊt Waind”, not ????????)

Here’s a tangle-free way to wind up your antenna wires without a line winder or any extra weight. I call it the “Goat Wind” because I learned it from a WG0AT video. The man is a SOTA legend and has produced some great videos – check out his channel ( if you haven’t.

For the record, it’s pronounced “wīnd,” not “wind” ????… silly English words.

Anyway, try this out and let me know how it works for you. Sure, you’ll still occasionally get a tangle, but by not twisting the wire, it’ll unfurl without issue the majority of the time.
