Modeling the Simple Inverted Vee Antenna, #102. Post #1469.

One of my favorite HF antennas is the classic inverted vee dipole--simple, effective, and inexpensive.  In this video from David Cassler (KE0OG), we get a full tutorial on this basic antenna which still serves radio amateurs today.

Dave says a few basic antenna modeling tools, such as EZNEC+, reveal a lot of vital information about this popular HF antenna, including the effect of height over ground, the amount of spreading between elements, and the type of mast used to support the inverted vee.  A properly designed inverted vee is the perfect antenna for both portable and home station use.
