Simple Ham Radio Antennas--HF tape measure horizontal dipole antenna. Post #790.


If you're having difficulty viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/PiU6x9aZT7A.  KI4PMI and NC4FB present an interesting approach to building a horizontal dipole antenna covering Amateur Radio Bands from 6 meters to 40 meters.  The antenna elements are steel tape measures, which you can find at hardware stores and home improvement outlets. I've built a few tape measure yagi/beam antennas for 2 meters, but I've never gone as far as building a tape measure dipole suitable for HF. Bands are selected by varying the lengths of the tape measures.  The video is well done and easy to follow.  This could be my next project.  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).
