Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Biconical Antenna. Post #1016.

An interesting video from Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) about an excellent, but lesser known VHF/UHF antenna.  The Biconical Antenna derives from the more popular discone antenna used to monitor public service radio bands.  The antenna is broad banded, easy to make, and offers better performance that a vertical antenna.  If you want to experiment with a truly fascinating antenna, try the biconical antenna.  You won't be disappointed.
