I always enjoy the "laid back" and relaxing manner in which Dave Casler presents his video tutorials. This one is no exception. In this video, Dave explains how to make and use a simple 40-meter dipole antenna from commonly available parts around your shack or home. Other materials can be found at the nearest building supply or hardware store.  In this case, Dave was able to make this antenna at no cost, thanks to the materials he had in his home. This is a classic case of time vs. money.  If you're willing to spend a few hours of free time making this antenna, you'll save money and have a lot of fun at the end of your labors.
