How to make a Quarter Wave Vertical Antenna Reflector for use on Parks On The Air (POTA) activations

In this video I show how I make a reflector for a 1/4 wave vertical antenna for use on POTA activations. If you know a better way please leave a comment in the comment section or if you just like this leave a comment. I will use it soon on a POTA and compare with out the reflector and also with a dipole.

POTA on the Bay K-3407 at Benicia State Recreation Area Benicia Ca.

In this Video I activate Parks On The Air at Benicia State Recreation Area May 10, 2020. In the activation I use a home made Linked Dipole and a MFJ 17′ extendable antenna and was amazed by my signal reports.
