Simple Ham Radio Antennas--HF tape measure horizontal dipole antenna. Post #693.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/PiU6x9aZT7A.  Here's another interesting way to build a simple, effective HF dipole antenna covering 6 meters to 40 meters.  The antenna elements are steel measuring tapes, which can be varied in length to control the resonant frequency of the antenna.  KI4PMI and NC4TB do an excellent job of designing and building this antenna.  Most of the materials can be purchased from the nearest hardware store or building supply outlet.
