Ham Radio - The Doublet. An old but good multi-band single dipole anten...


If you can't see the video, please insert the title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tA4loiihJwE. This is post 2108 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

One of my favorite multiband HF antennas is the classic "All-Band Doublet."  The antenna is a basic 1/2 wave length horizontal dipole fed with balanced feedline going into a "balanced antenna tuner."

In this video, Kevin Loughnin (KB9RLW) begins a two-part series on the theory, design, construction, and testing of this versatile, easy-to-make antenna.

In part 1, Kevin looks at the antenna and its design before building the antenna.  In part 2, Kevin finishes construction and tests the doublet 's performance on the air.

Here are some of Kevin's observations, along with links to helpful resources:

"One of the antennas I've wanted to play with for awhile. In this video, we look at the antenna and it's design, and then my build of the antenna. In part 2, we'll look at it's performance and try it out on the air. Link to web site mentioned in the vid: http://webclass.org/k5ijb/antennas/Al...
