Goofy Antennas That Work. Post 1961.

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

In this video from Stan Gibilisco (W1GV), we learn a few new things about coax-fed dipole antennas and open-wire-fed zepp antennas.  Both of these "classic" HF antennas perform well if we pay attention to the peculiarities of each antenna.

While coax-fed HF dipole antennas are simple and easy to build, the zepp or "Zeppelin Antenna" is a tricky "beast" that can prove frustrating to design, tune, and use.

Stan offers some useful suggestions on designing and building these antennas, so that your efforts will succeed without problems.  An interesting look at two different HF antennas that can serve you well in the years ahead.
