Simple Ham Radio Antennas--10/15/20m Trap Vertical Antenna, Part 2 of 4. Post #734


If you're have trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/SxooXltxolI.  Here's part 2 of Dave Tadlock's (KG0ZZ) 4 part series on how to build a 10/15/20 meter trap vertical antenna.  In this section, Dave shows us how we can attach the coaxial cable to the aluminum tubing.  Just a note on the coaxial traps---Dave uses RG-58 coaxial cable for the traps and notes that this small diameter cable is sufficient for power levels up to 300 watts.  To be on the safe side, keep your power below 100 watts and you should do fine.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
