Cheap 40m high-gain Aerial. The Half Square. Simple Amateur Ham Radio An...


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0i0EazI3O0.  This is post 2086 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

In our last post, we learned how to build an 80 meter half square antenna, which delivers broadside coverage, a low takeoff angle, and moderate gain over a conventional dipole.

We suggested that the same construction practices could be applied to other amateur/ham radio bands, including 40 meters.

In this video, Callum McCormick (M0MCX), sets the stage for creating this antenna with a general overview of the half square and some of the construction considerations involved with this antenna.

If you want an efficient, high performance DX antenna, then the half square may be for you.
