Shortwave communication is one of the main means to guarantee long-distance communication, and its link establishment is a practical problem in engineering practice. Based on the analysis of the propagation mode of short wave signal, the calculation method of elevation and azimuth in the design of short wave communication link is analyzed, the relationship between the working frequency of antenna erection height is discussed, the basic thinking method of setting up short wave communication link is put forward, and it is applied in a certain communication support task, and good results are achieved. This method can be used for reference in the construction of HF communication link.
