Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Phased End-Fire Arrays. Post #646.


If you're having difficulty viewing this video, please insert this address into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/vBpv26sqK9Y.  In this simple, clearly explained video, Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) moves away from his discussion of phased vertical antennas to a review of phased horizontal dipoles.  With a little attention to detail, you can build one of these simple antennas which will give you hours of good DX.   You can feed the array with either 50 ohm coaxial cable or with 450 ohm ladder line.  Stan also published a book in 2014 that covers this topic in detail.  Particulars are given in the opening few minutes of the video. Good luck!  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.
