Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Review of the new AA125 Broadband HF Folded Dipole antenna system. Post #522


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this URL into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/VY0IkEL0FS0.  Here's an interesting antenna idea from Australia.  In this well done video from "hfradioaustralia", we see a demonstration of the AA125 Broadband HF Folded Dipole Antenna System.  The antenna was first marketed by Bushcom Australia about three years ago and has gained a loyal following. The antenna covers a frequency range of 3 MHz to 17 MHz without the need for an antenna transmatch (i.e. tuner).  If you have some space and a few moderately sized trees, this antenna would be worth trying. I've built a few "homebrewed" folded dipoles for 20 meters and have found them to be good antennas.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.
