An Awesome Antenna For VHF 2m SSB CW, Part 1 Build. Post 2041.

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

This somewhat unusual "Hourglass" antenna from "" is a horizontally polarized antenna for those involved with 2 meter SSB, CW, and digital modes.  The original idea for this antenna came from a "QST" article, which is cited in the links below.

In part one of this two-part series, we get a general overview of the theory, construction, tuning, and use of this antenna.

Here's the overall description of the antenna from "":

"Its vertical shape makes it easy to fit anywhere and it is not too long to fit inside a regular car. Efficiency is near that of a Moxon, about 5db, but with a bi-directional, almost omni-directional pattern. Much bigger than a Moxon, which I consider to be portable, but nevertheless it could be dismantled for transport. It is sort of a double Delta Loop. The feed-point has a fifty Ohm impedance, which is another great advantage as no matching is required. Get extra content and help this channel: Original design PDF: My Moxon antenna build:"
