Simple Ham Radio Antennas--2014 Field Day - Free Standing Painter Pole Fan Dipole with W4EDF


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/yM6TGiFkdMM.  I ran into this interesting video from W4EDF while I was searching for Field Day antennas.  The ARRL Field Day will be held on 25 June to 26 June 2016 at thousands of remote and public areas across the United States and Canada.  Field Day is the largest amateur radio emergency exercise of the year.  Field Day also has become a popular contest for hams around the world.  In this excellent video tutorial, W4EDF shows us how to assemble and deploy a guy-supported painter pole fan dipole antenna.  This antenna was used at his 2014 Field Day site with good effect.  Materials, wires, knots, poles, and guying techniques are shown throughout the video.  Perhaps this simple multiband antenna will be your choice at your Field Day site.  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).
