Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Tri-Band Fan Vertical for 40-80-160m. Post #904.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMexeDPeRIM. I've heard of fan dipole antennas, but this video shows something different in the "fan dipole family"--the fan vertical HF antenna. Corey Klumper (N0ECK) of Russell, MN show us how he modified the fan dipole concept into something useful for those of us using vertical HF antennas.  The nicely done video shows us the complete design and assembly process.  Corey says his fan HF vertical covers the 40-80 and -160 meter bands.  He used this antenna successfully in the 2015 contest season.  You may want to build a version of this intriguing antenna for your station.
