Antennas, Radiation Patterns, Baluns, and SWR for Beginners. Post 1823.


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPeP9YV72mc.

This simple, direct tutorial from"Amateur Radio World" covers most of the basic antenna concepts, including elementary antenna theory, various radiation patterns, the use of baluns, and SWR.  The explanations are clear and well illustrated. This video should be part of any introductory amateur/ham radio license course.  Perhaps the video would have been a bit easier to understand if the producers used both the traditional "foot-pound" and SI (metric system) antenna formulas.
