Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Conical Monopole Antenna. Post #711.

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/sScrfbf0ulg.  If you want a broadband vertical antenna, then the conical monopole antenna described by Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) may be what you need.  Years ago, this antenna was popular with military communications sites.  Stan describes the theory, design, and construction details of this unique vertical antenna.  As with all vertical antennas, a good ground radial system is needed to obtain peak performance.
