Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Cubical Quad Antennas. Post #624.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please enter this address into your browser search box: https//youtu.be/BrVgcxVqwng. In this well-produced and easy to follow video tutorial, Dave Tadlock (KG0ZZ) discusses the theory, design, building, and the use of cubical quad antennas for both HF and VHF amateur radio bands.  Cubical quads provide a substantial amount of gain and directivity, important considerations for DX chasers.  Cubical quads are fairly easy to make for VHF and UHF frequencies.  Most of us can probably handle a quad for 10 meters as well.  Cubical quads for 20 meters can present some construction issues, so extra care must be used to build these antennas for durability and strength.  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.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
