Making and Using a Simple 40-m Dipole (#86)

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: This is post 2102 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to Dave Casler (KE0OG) for this nicely done tutorial on how to make a 40 meter dipole antenna out of parts you may have around your home.

There's no need to spend a lot of money on an antenna if you're willing to use what's available locally.  Antenna experimentation is both fun and educational.  Put those antenna formulas to work on a dipole you made yourself.

Here are some observations from Dave as he makes this homebrew 40 meter dipole antenna:

"I'm often asked how to make a dipole. In this video I use materials on hand to build a 40-meter amateur radio dipole. I hung it on the antenna test rig I built this past week, and it works great! Lots of work, though. Although dipoles are available for far less than $100, I made this one for zero!"
