N9SAB Ultralight QRP Stealth Dipole-Field Test. Post 1941.


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18FGuuaif9c.

In this video, "Outdoors on the Air" discusses a fascinating ham radio dipole offered by Tim (N9SAB) on his ebay store.  The original idea for this 20 meter off-center fed dipole comes from Dennis Blanchard and his video entitled "Ham Radio Hiking Gear."

This 20 meter dipole requires no coax as it is designed to connect directly to a transceiver jack.  According to the video, no assembly or antenna "tuner" is required.  The antenna accepts a PL-259 connector.  The off-center fed antenna is integrated with a 4:1 balun.  The cost of the antenna is approximately $20 (USD).
