Simple Ham Radio Antennas--80-6 meter OCF Dipole Antenna for SHTF or Backpacking Part 2


If you're unable to view this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/H7w-dji-Nv4.  This is part 2, of how to build and use an OCF 80-6 meter Dipole Antenna suitable for portable, emergency, or even for HOA/CC&R-restricted areas. This is post number 757. In this video, "survivalist2008" pays particular attention to the importance of an antenna transmatch to make sure your rig isn't damaged by the high SWRs found on this antenna system.  "Survivalist2008" (John) (KU4JZ) also describes the battery system he uses to operate in the field. John's Off-Center-Fed-Dipole is simple, inexpensive, and highly portable.  After he finishes for the day, John simply winds up the antenna wire on a trout fishing reel.  A nice antenna for portable use.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog's sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.
