Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Zepp Antenna Theory. Post #563.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please enter the following URL into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/TwYSS3352Zw.  An excellent tutorial on the theory, construction, and use of the popular Zepp (or Zeppline) antenna.  Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) does a good job of explaining how this half-wave antenna works.  If you have sufficient space, the Zepp will perform very well.  As Stan suggests, you can get multiband performance of this antenna by using 450 ohm ladder line or 300 ohm television twin lead to feed signals to a balun and an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner").  For the latest Amateur Radio news and information, 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.
