Homebrew 20 Meter DiPole Antenna speaker wire


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXfIgA28164.  This is post 2082 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to "Ham Radio CQ" for this ultra simple and inexpensive 20 meter antenna.

HF antennas don't have to be expensive to work well.  Surplus parts and a good search through a local hardware store can often give you enough parts to make an effective HF dipole for any band of your choice.  Online vendors, such as Amazon, can supply you with wire and simple tools to assemble your "homebrew" antenna.

This video is easy to follow and takes you step by step through the design, building, and testing phase of creating a working HF dipole antenna for the 20 meter band.

Here's a list of possible materials and vendors you can use to build this antenna:
