ABSTRACT
Chapter 5 of the book "Low Profile Amateur Radio: Operating a Ham Station From Almost Anywhere," Second Edition is presented. It discusses three main types of feed line for use with low-profile antennas namely coaxial cable, ladder line and single-wire feed. Coaxial cables has the advantage of being buried and kept out of sight. Ladder lines were made following the electrical idea of open-wire line. The single-wire feed has the advantage of being less visible than other types of feed lines.
