Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Six Meter Folded Dipole Antenna. Post #406.


If you have difficulty viewing this video, please enter the title link into your browser search bar: https://youtu.be/qbje13U6hC4. Here's a fairly simple antenna project that will get you on the exciting 6 meter Amateur Radio band. The video tutorial by Claude Jollet is clear, well-produced, and easy to follow. Jollet says his 6 meter folded dipole antenna is "made of ladder line; the feed line is ladder line; and (is) matched with a step down 4:1 coaxial balun at the bottom of the transmission line." He says the antenna is cut to resonate at 50.4 MHz and shows a SWR of 1.3 to 1.0 between 50.0 MHz and 51.0 MHz. Good luck on "The Magic Band."
