Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Zepp Antenna Theory. Post #843.


If you're having difficulty in viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwYSS335wZw. One of the classic multiband HF antennas you should try is the "Zepp" or "Zeppelin" antenna, which was once used on those huge German airships of the 1920s and 1930s.  In this video, Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) explains the theory, design, and construction of this antenna.  He also compares the "Zepp" to other half-wavelength antennas, such as the half-wave dipole. A good, basic introduction to an antenna that is still used today.
