Ham Radio - The Doublet antenna, QSOs and observations.


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sli_OXoOugM. This is post 2109 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

This intriguing, informative video from Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) is part 2 of his experimental All-Band Doublet Antenna. In part 1, Kevin designed the antenna, selected his parts, and began assembling the doublet.

In part 2, Kevin finishes his doublet antenna and tests it out on the air.  He makes several international QSOs, including one from Cape Town, South Africa. 

Here are some extra notes from Kevin which may help you decide to build this multiband dipole antenna:

"Thoughts and observations after using the doublet for awhile. Plus a couple of QSOs, one of which was stellar. Original design and build video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tA4lo...
