How to build a dipole antenna for Ham Radio. Post 1964.

Sometimes it's good to review basic antenna theory and practice before we embark on another antenna project.  What could be simpler than the "classic" HF dipole antenna?

In this video from Johnny (W5KV), we learn how easy it is to design, build, test, and use a HF dipole antenna with only simple tools, some 50 ohm coaxial feed line, a cutting board, and some household wire.  An effective HF dipole antenna can be inexpensive, effective, and fun to use.

Johnny does an excellent job of taking us from basic antenna theory to completed antenna in only a few steps.  His explanations are clear, concise, and easy to follow.

This video would make an excellent club or license class presentation.
