Counterpoise

Anybody have a picture of a home made counterpoise? I know you can use pretty much anything metal. But I'd like to see a portable one.

Depends on the antenna type.  An omni has a spider web shaped counterpoise while a dipole has a rectangular one.  Directional antenni use a pie shaped counterpoise.  The common factor is that the legs are 1/2 wavelength or greater from emitter source.  As for pictures, I only have diagrams.

The stash of SigOps is often lengendary.  I've heard stories of magic, fire, women and gold. 
Usually something catches fire.

On the 'net, I found these homebuilts:
