Six Meter Folded Dipole Antenna. Post 1874.

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

This somewhat unusual video from Claude Jollet (VE2DPE) shows how to make a simple, inexpensive, and portable Six Meter Folded Dipole Antenna.  Although there is no voice track, the photos and text comments provide a good overview of the design, assembly, and testing phases of this antenna.

According to Claude, the antenna elements "are made from ladder line, fed with ladder line and matched with a step down 4:1 coaxial balun at the bottom of the transmission line..."  The antenna is "cut to resonance at 50.4 MHz and the SWR is below 1:3 between 50.0 MHz and 51.0 MHz."

Even though there is no vocal commentary, the photos and text should make construction of this antenna fairly easy.
