Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Discover the Discone for HF. Post #906.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5U2_D_G5zE. Nice, compact tutorial from Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) on the theory, design, and use of HF Discone Antennas.  Although most discone antennas seem to be used on the amateur radio VHF/UHF bands and by public service agencies, there are a few HF discone antennas in use, particularly in military or government service.  The antenna is broadbanded and offers coverage from 40 meters through 10 meters. A HF discone antenna may be an interesting project.
