Tuning the 40/80 meter Inverted V Dipole Antenna, Post #1511.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box:

Inverted V Dipole Antennas are simple, inexpensive, portable, and capable of multiband operations using a variety of options.  In this video, Dave Tadlock (KG0ZZ) uses homebrew coils to convert his inverted V antenna into a dual-band, 40/80 meter antenna.  The video offers valuable suggestions on adjusting the loading coils for optimum efficiency on both 40 and 80 meters.  This coil-loaded 40/80 meter inverted V would make an excellent HF antenna for the upcoming ARRL Field Day, especially now that propagation is favoring 160, 80, and 40 meters.
