How would you like to build a simple, inexpensive, trap dipole antenna that covers the Amateur Radio 80, 40 ,20, 15, and 10 meter bands without an antenna transmatch ("tuner")?  You can if you follow the instructions posted by Len Paget (GMO0NX).  Len's antenna is based on a proven design by W3DZZ.

This trapped dipole is shorter than most monoband dipoles and requires two simple coaxial cable traps to make the antenna system work. Les says the SWR for each band is below 2:1 and often is better than 1.5:1.  You can configure the trapped dipole in a variety of ways, from a basic flat-top dipole to an inverted Vee, depending on the space available.

The article has plenty of diagrams and pictures to help you design and build this uncomplicated, effective multi band HF antenna.  To view the article, please click the link to download Les's pdf.
