Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Ham Radio 40/80 Meter Inverted V Dipole Antenna. Post #789


If you're having difficulty viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser seach box: https://youtu.be/wgIbWafVnSc.  I've always enjoyed Dave Turlock's (KG0ZZ) videos for their clarity, ease of understanding, and production value.  This video on how to make a 40/80 meter Inverted V Dipole Antenna is no exception.  This two-band HF antenna is easy to design and build.  Loading coils make this antenna a full-size structure on 40 meters and a shortened antenna for 80 meters.  This antenna would be ideal for radio amateurs who live on small urban lots.  If you have the room, you may want to add 160 meters to this antenna for some interesting contacts on "The Gentlemen's Band."  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).
