Tilted Terminated Folded Dipole. Post #1487.


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Batw43uoQ9I.

Here's an antenna you don't see very often--The T2FD (Tilted Terminated Folded Dipole).  This antenna is well-suited for small urban lots and can be used as a horizontal dipole, a sloper,or even as an inverted vee dipole antenna.

In this short video, "SpectreOZ" shows his T2FD from design to installation, featuring a 10 watt terminating resistor made from 4, 5 watt 390 ohm resistors in a series parallel circuit.  The circuit is joined to a 4:1 balun, which is encased in pvc pipe for stability and weather resistance.

If you feel in an experimental mood, why not try this classic HF antenna in your backyard?
