    There are also "sand stakes" to hold a surf fishing pole.

    ..some shorter, some longer.

    They work quite well.

    Wandering away from the 18xxT antennas, I bring on my travels a 20' Shakespeare Wonder Pole. I can either run it with the radiator as a sloper, or wind it around the pole. The advantage of the WonderPole is that it's like $20 versus the Sota and Jackite offerings.

    I also have an 1899T and I just got an AX1. I will be building some counterpoise "assemblies" for these for the different bands to use with my KX3 and I want to see how I get out with the two "compromise" antennas.

    My biggest successes have been with an end-fed that +KU3X sold me. Wonderful unit. Covers 10-40 meters. My go-to is to fly the end of this up with the WonderPole and I start making Qs.

    Cabelas sells a "sand stake" - two lengths, 18" and 48". It has 1.75" "collar" that holds the WonderPole quite nicely. It's $9.
