40 Meter Inverted V Antenna - Build, Tune & Test! Post 1952.


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-vpRMQWanw.

In this video from Greg Alexander, we see the complete design, construction, tuning, and testing sequence involved in making an inverted V "Fan Dipole Antenna."

According to Greg, this homebrew multiband HF antenna covers the 40, 20, 15, 10, and 6 meter amateur radio bands.  If you build your fan dipole/inverted V with care, you won't need an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner") to solve high SWR issues.

Greg does an excellent job of showing us the materials and techniques used to build this simple, easily supported (only one tall support is needed) HF antenna.
