A trap dipole antenna is a good choice if you only want to operate on two or three amateur radio bands and don't want to readjust an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner"/"coupler").  In this video, Peter Parker (VK3YE) shows us how to make a simple, inexpensive trap dipole for the 40 meter (7 MHz) and 20 meter (14 MHz) amateur radio bands.  The principles described in this video can be applied to other antenna combinations, such as 30/40 meters, 80/160 meters, and 15/20 meters.  Peter's explanation of how to build the 20 meter trap is especially well done and easy to understand.
