Multi-Band HF Fan Dipole Antenna Construction


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PT1kSQjQIkM. This is post 2110 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

How would you like to build a multi-band HF antenna without the use of an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner")?  You can if you create what is called a "Fan Dipole Antenna."

In this short video, Alex (KD0YNH) and Corey (M0ECK) take you step-by-step through the basic theory, design, construction, and testing of this versatile HF antenna.

Using Alex's and Corey's simple template, you'll have an antenna that covers the 80-40-20-15 meter amateur radio bands without the use of an antenna tuner.

This antenna is cheap, easy-to-build, and can be used in a variety of configurations, such as an inverted V or a sloper.
