Wire Antennas for Dummies by Callum, M0MCX. Post #1409.


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1_H-4dw31Q.

A near faultless presentation by Callum McCormick (M0MCX) covering basic theory, construction, and operation of dipoles, loops, and other wire antennas.  He clearly demonstrates what happens when you change the shape, height, and location of wire antennas. His explanation of loop antennas is particularly good.

Callum says he developed this video from a presentation he gave before his radio club.  This video would make an excellent discussion topic for your next club meeting or for helping those enrolled in a Foundation or Technician License Class.  You may want to download this video and keep it in your reference library.
