Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Ham Stick Vertical Dipole Antenna. Post #804.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/CbQwLPVmG70. In this well-made video, Brian Downs (W3ATT) show us how to use two "ham stick" 20 meter mobile antennas to create a vertical dipole for portable or emergency use.  This antenna also could be used as a quickly-erected antenna for those living in HOA-or CC&R-controlled homes or apartments.  Brian does an excellent job of showing just how easy it is to get a vertical dipole antenna assembled and used. With the use of a balanced feeder, such as 450 ohm ladder line, connected to a tuner/balun combination, this antenna could be used on any amateur radio band from 20 to 10 meters.  A nice, simple, inexpensive, and highly portable antenna.  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!
