This is post #661. If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this address into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/P523GAymx7Q.  This is part one of a three-part series describing the process of designing, building, and using a homebrew 20 Meter Dipole Antenna.  Dave (AF5DN) takes you step-by-step in building this simple, inexpensive, and effective amateur radio antenna. Most of the parts are available at Home Depot or at Lowes.  The tutorial is clear and easy to follow.  All you need are a few simple tools, PVC pipe sections, wire, some 50 ohm coaxial cable feed line, and an antenna transmatch ("tuner") to complete the project.  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.
