Simple Ham Radio Antennas--New Home Brew Ladder Line Project at N4LQ. Post #822.


If you're unable to view this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?=c1Ays78mwZA.  If you want to add multiband capability to your dipole antenna, use a balanced feeder for your antenna elements. In this video, Steve Ellington show us how to make ladder line from common materials around the home and some 12-gauge "Flexweave 545" from the Wireman.  Steve uses this homebrew ladder line to feed his 128-foot/36.15 meter horizontal dipole.  The spreaders for the ladder line are approximately 6-inches/15.24 cm wide.  Nicely done, easily understandable tutorial from Steve.
