Simple Ham Radio Antennas--4.2 Short Dipole. Post #698.

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: A professionally produced video tutorial on short dipoles, prepared for a junior electromagnetics course in electrical engineering at Bucknell University. The video is being used as supplementary course material for future electrical and broadcast engineering students.  The video covers the basics of short or Hertzian dipole antennas with an emphasis on antenna theory, classification of antennas (current and aperture), general properties of short dipole antennas, and design considerations.  Although the mathematics used in this video are a bit complex, the explanation and diagrams are easy to understand.  Understanding the complexities of dipole antennas may involve a learning curve, but, when you do understand the theory behind this simple antenna, you will get a better grasp of why antennas behave as they do.  This video should be a part of your reference library.  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.
