If you want a simple, effective, and inexpensive antenna for the 40 and 20 meter amateur radio bands, then this video by RC286 is for you.  This video documentary covers the theory, design, construction, and use of this two-band HF antenna.  Dipole antennas can do an excellent job if they are mounted high enough and clear from obstructions. Even if you can only support an inverted Vee dipole antenna on a single mast, you will still get good results.  Make one of these antennas for portable or emergency use.  This two band HF dipole antenna can also serve as a "backup antenna" in case your current antenna is disabled.
