Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Building A Multi-Band HF Dipole Antenna. Post #829.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KHzsKYsZL0.  Here's another simple variation of the HF dipole antenna which can be built with commonly available materials.  This antenna is often called a "fan dipole" because elements for each band are "fanned out" from a common connection point.  If you design this antenna carefully, you'll have a multi-band HF dipole antenna that doesn't require an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner").  In this video, Glenn (The Radio Ham Guy--WD0AKX) shows us just how simple it is to design, build, and use one of these basic, effective dipoles. Glenn's dipole antenna covers the 40-20-15-10-and 6 meter bands. A well-done production with many helpful suggestions for the antenna builder.
