If you live in an urban neighborhood plagued by noise and other interference, you may want to build what is called a "double bazooka" antenna.

The double bazooka antenna is an efficient, single band antenna which is very quiet and does not require a balun.  The antenna consists of coaxial cable, such as RG-58, or other 50 ohm type with the shield split at the center and the feed line attached to the open ends.  The antenna is broad banded, allowing full coverage of a single band without excessive SWR.

In this video, Bill (WX4AR) takes us step-by-step through the design, construction, and testing phases of this of easy-to-build antenna.

Why not build one for the upcoming ARRL Field Day?  You may be surprised how well this simple antenna performs in a noisy environment.
