Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Open-Wire Dipole Antenna. Post #791.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/wMPk45MVFp.  Well-done, easily understandable tutorial on the theory, design, and use of an open-wire dipole antenna for the HF amateur radio bands.  This antenna is a simple, efficient, and proven HF antenna design that will give you many hours of pleasure as you search for contacts on the amateur radio bands.  Cut the antenna elements for the 80 meter band, feed the antenna with open-wire, and use a balanced tuner or tuner with balun combination, and you'll have an antenna that will cover all amateur radio bands from 80 meters through 10 meters.  If you can only build one HF antenna on your property, go for the open-wire dipole with open-wire feeders.For more information on this dipole antenna, contact Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) at http://www.sciencewriter.net.  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).
