Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Ham Radio 40/80/160 Meter Inverted V Dipole Antenna. Post #568.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please enter this URL into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/GLhNUmolKKY. Nicely done video from Dave Tadlock (KG0ZZ).  In this presentation, Dave shows us how to build a coil-loaded 40/80/160 meter inverted V Dipole Antenna.  Dave says the 3-band inverted V can fit into his small city lot and will give radio amateurs a chance to work 160 meter contacts without a lot of real estate.  There's a good chance that the 40 meter segment will also work on 15 meters, that band being a third harmonic of 40 meters.  This would make an excellent weekend project.  Building antennas is half the fun of Amateur Radio.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  You can follow our blog community with a free email subscription or by tapping into the blog RSS feed.
