Simple Ham Radio Antennas--New folded dipole wire antenna for HF. Post #784


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/l2vhS8QWfbo.  In this video by "vener6", we see another way of designing and building a folded dipole wire antenna for the HF amateur radio bands.  This antenna was built to replace an old dipole antenna that was no longer serviceable.  The balun is made from19-20 turns of RG-8U coaxial cable wound on a 3-inch/7.62 cm pvc pipe.  Vener6 says this antenna does an excellent job on 80 meters.  Hopefully, this antenna will encourage you to build a folded dipole antenna for your ham station.
