Six Meter Folded Dipole Antenna. Post 1828.

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

An excellent video tutorial from Claude Jollet (VE2DPE), despite the lack of a voice track.  The video and slides provide enough guidance for  you to build your own 6-meter folded dipole antenna.

Claude made this antenna from ladder line, fed with ladder line, and matched with a step down 4:1 coaxial balun at the bottom of the transmission line.  Claude says the antenna is resonant at 50.4 MHz, with a SWR below 1.3 to 1 between 50.0 MHz and 51.0 MHz.
