Doublet aerial for HF amateur ham radio short wave bands. Post 1754.

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

An effective, simple, and inexpensive multiband HF dipole antenna is as close as your "junk box" and the local building supply outlet. If you can find some 300 ohm television ribbon feed line, a 4:1 current balun, and an extra antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner"), you'll be able to make a classic "doublet" antenna that will serve you well for many years.

In this video, Ray of the "Radio Workshop" show us how to build an ultra-simple doublet antenna with commonly available parts.  The doublet is suitable for both home and field operations.  Try one--you won't be disappointed.
