Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Vertical Antenna 5/8 wave for 15 mtr ham radio band, Part 1. Post #583

If you're having trouble with viewing this video, please insert this URL into your browser search box: Nice, basic tutorial from Tommy Horozakis on how to design, build, and use a 5/8 wavelength vertical antenna for 15 meters.  This is part 1 of a 2 part series.  A properly designed 5/8 wavelength vertical can give you a theoretical gain of nearly 3dB over a quarter wavelength vertical, so investing a little more space and time in building this antenna will pay off in a stronger signal.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  You can follow our blog community with a free email subscription or by tapping into the blog RSS feed.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
