In this video, Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) explains some of the quirks found in two popular HF amateur/ham radio antennas--the coax fed dipole and the zepp. Although the title of this post is somewhat sarcastic, the basic theory, construction, and operation behind the common dipole and zepp antenna are sound and easily grasped. Stan pays particular attention to how these antennas are fed and what to expect from voltage and current fed antennas. These topics are important if you wish to reduce SWR and avoid problems associated with a mismatched antenna system.
