Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Building Ladder Line by N4LQ. Post #915.

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: Making your own ladder line to feed your antennas is easy if you follow Steve Ellington's (N4LQ) step-by-step video.  Most of the wire and ties can be bought at your neighborhood hardware store or building supply outlet. You can use your home made ladder line and a balanced antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner") to turn your dipole into a multi-band antenna.  You can also use a 4:1 current balun to connect your ladder line to your regular "tuner".  Be sure to spray all connections with a UV-resistant paint.
