210 Ft Non Resonant Dipole - Fed With 90 Feet of Ladder Line. Post 1967.

Here's an interesting antenna from the Overlook Mountain Amateur Radio Club.

This multiband HF antenna was inspired by a design from NE2Q.  The antenna is a 210 ft/64.02 meters Non Resonant Dipole fed by 90 ft/27.43 meters of 450 ohm ladder line.  The ladder line goes into a 4:1 current balun and then connects to an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tune") with a short length of 50 ohm coax.

The antenna covers 160 meters through 10 meters and shows a marked improvement over the club's Fan Dipole.  If you have some space, you may want to build this simple, effective, and inexpensive multiband HF antenna.
