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!"
