Six Meter Home Brew Dipole Antenna. Post #1098,

In our last post, I described a simple 6 meter vertical ground plane antenna that will get you on the "magic band" in just a few hours.  If you want a bit more gain and some directivity, try this homebrew 6 meter dipole antenna from KF7TOV. The antenna can be built with commonly available materials from the nearest building supply outlet or neighborhood hardware store.  This would make an excellent weekend project or an emergency antenna for the 2017 ARRL Field Day event.
