According to Edward M. Noll (W3FQJ), “The 5/8-wavelength vertical is a preferred length for the best low angle radiation.” For the higher HF bands (20 through 10 meters), this antenna is easily assembled and requires a small …

Russ Roberts‘s insight:

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been building a series of 5/8 wavelength vertical antennas for the upper HF bands (20, 15,10 meters).  In this article, I describe how I built a simple 5/8 wavelength vertical for 10 meters.  The antenna exhibits about 3 dB gain over a 1/4 wavelength vertical for the same frequency.  The antenna should give you an edge as you hunt down illusive DX on 10 meters.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
