What started out as a "snow day" project for Barbara Justice and her children ended up as a 40 meter/20 meter fan dipole configured as an inverted V antenna.  Barbara says a few modifications also allowed her to use the antenna on 40-20-15-10 and 6 meters.  Despite the antennas low height above ground, the overall results of this winter activity produced a useful, multiband HF antenna at a modest cost.

The video takes you-step-by-step through the building, configuration, and use of this versatile antenna.  The assembly process is organized, efficient, and simple.  Just follow the instructions and you'll have an efficient multiband HF antenna in just a few hours.
