One of the ways you can achieve multiband HF coverage using only one coaxial cable feed line is to build a "Fan Dipole", with separate dipoles for as many HF bands you want to use. The key to this "classic" antenna is the construction of a sturdy, weather resistant center Insulator to support your various dipole antennas.
In this video from Jim (W6LG), we see how some PVC plumbing parts, a coax connector, and a few screw eyes can make a tough, inexpensive center connector for your Fan Dipole.
Jim takes us step-by-step through the design, construction, and testing phases of this helpful antenna accessory. A well-done, easily understandable tutorial from a well-know antenna pro. Please note the classic Drake Amateur Radio gear in the background.
