This Single wire beverage classic is a long wire antenna installed very close to the ground. The antenna should be longer than 1 wavelength and installed at a height of less than 0.05 wavelength above ground - on the ground for this model. The beverage is usually terminated in a resistance at the end (opposite the feedpoint). Beverage antennas provide one of the least expensive and most reliable ways to improve DX capabilities on the low frequencies.
