Simple Ham Radio Antennas--How to Build a Six Meter Ham Radio Dipole Antenna


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4K5Vj6wtpE0. This is post # 951 in a continuing series on simple ham radio antennas.  In this video, Randy Hall (K7AGE) shows us how to build a simple, inexpensive, and effective dipole antenna for the 6 Meter Amateur Radio Band.  You can use aluminum tubing, pvc pipe, or even bamboo to support your dipole.  Even a simple dipole made from 12 to 14 gauge wire supported by trees or telescoping fiberglass masts will perform very well.  Most of the materials for this basic antenna can be found at the nearest hardware store or building supply outlet.  Have fun!
