Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Building a Multi-Band Dipole. Post #614.


If you're having difficulty viewing this video, please insert this address into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/cQfj9879K_c.  If you would like multi-band HF coverage but  can erect only one antenna, then the dipole project from Bob Plank (KK4DIV) may be just what you need. Bob gives us a step-by-step tutorial on how to build this simple, yet effect multi-band antenna that covers the 40, 20, 17, 15, and 10 meter amateur radio bands.  Most of the material can be found at the nearest building supply outlet or home improvement center.  The balun for this antenna is easily made from some 50 ohm coaxial cable and PVC pipe.  This would make an excellent weekend project.  For the latest amateur radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
