An excellent antenna tutorial from Marc C. Tarplee (N4UFP).  In part 1 of his continuing antenna series, Tarplee explores the theory, construction, and operation of several popular wire antennas, including the dipole, half wave, full wave, double zepp, off-center fed dipole, and the G5RV.

The explanations are clear, concise, and well-organized.  If you need an antenna refresher or a basic reference document, then this article is for you.
